A combined water and general capital budget of slightly more than $2.1 million for the 2021-22 fiscal year was approved by Amherst town council during its April 26, 2021, council session.
“These capital projects will help us maintain our town infrastructure and allow us to continue providing the many excellent services we do for the citizens of the Town of Amherst,” Mayor David Kogon said.
Amherst town council’s committee of the whole is recommending that council approve amendments to its Amherst Youth Town Council policy when it meets on April 26, 2021.
The referral to the upcoming council meeting was made by the committee when it met on April 19, 2021.
Lisa Gower is the Town of Amherst’s Volunteer of the Year.
“Lisa is a great example of the many volunteers in this community who go above and beyond to ensure Amherst is a great place to live, work and play,” Mayor David Kogon said recently, as he presented her with a plaque recognizing her achievement.
“We appreciate her volunteerism and that of all the volunteers we have in this great town. Without their efforts many activities that engage our citizens of all ages wouldn’t take place. The town alone certainly couldn’t offer all of the programs these volunteers make happen.”
Jason MacDonald has been appointed the interim chief administrative officer for the Town of Amherst.
