Lincoln participates with Operation Gratitude 2013
This week, a care package was sent off to the Operation Gratitude headquarters full of hats and scarves made by employee Diana Hill on behalf of the Town of Lincoln. Last year former Councilor Mike Ireland challenged residents and employees to send letters to soldiers over the holidays. This sparked an idea and the hats/scarves went into production. To help with this great project, please visit: www.operationgratitude.com
Transfer Station Ad Hoc Committee Meeting will be held November 25th at 5:30PM in the Council Chambers.
The new Cruiser has arrived...
Public Safety Director Dan Summers and Detective Mark Fucile picked up the new cruiser today. The SUV was purchased from Cole Whitney Ford after they won the bid process. This vehicle was paid for by the First Wind TIF. The decision was made to purchase the SUV rather than a traditional cruiser (sedan) to better serve our residents, by having the ability to reach remote locations. This all wheel drive vehicle and its equipment, which includes emergency lighting, were both designed for high visibility. Looks Good!
