RENAMING OF OLD COUNTY ROAD
Jon Bohl thought Newkom Road would be an appropriate name since Mr. Newkom lived there for so many years. The public hearing to rename the easterly side of Old County Road was set for September 20, 2018 at 5:45 p.m. Notices of the hearing will be posted and sent to the abutters.
Chris Warren advised that the State of Vermont has certain requirements for a .gov address and wordpress does not support the state’s requirements. He believes it is time to move forward and purchase our own domain name. Jim Stimpson suggested stamfordvermont.org and said it was available. Other names were discussed such as stamfordvermonttown.org which might give the website a distinction as the town’s site. The Selectboard would like feedback from our residents with ideas for the town’s website address and a decision will be made at the next meeting. Please contact a Selectboard member or the town clerk with your suggestions.
Chris Warren received a survey request from the Southern Vermont Economy Project about internet and cellular connectivity. He is happy to respond to the survey. They are asking what the state of connectivity is in town, what interests our town has, what future steps we would like to take, etc. They are gathering information and there is no commitment.
