Mason Selectmen met Tuesday to round up short term plans up to Town Meeting day. 

The most immediate of those plans is to move forward with internet improvements in town buildings on the western side of Darling Hill Road. The elementary school across the street is known to have the best connection in Mason, and now the others will get a boost, starting today, March 2, with the police station.

“Let’s do it, let’s get it done,” Selectman Bernard O’Grady said about scheduling the work. “We anticipated it and prepared for it in the budget.”

The telecommunications budget for the police department is going up three-percent – from $5,800 to $6,000 – for 2017. Similarly, the library, town clerk and financial administration, which occupy the Mann House, telephone and internet lines increase a total of $2,050. This partially reflects a new cost share, and improvements upcoming in that building as well.

The website administrator is also interested in looking into a new host for masonnh.us. The selectmen backed researching the matter.

“We are in support of finding some other option,” Chair Louise Lavoie said.

The Mason Board of Selectmen will squeeze in one more meeting before town meeting.

Because elections for town officials and on the school district warrant will take place on Tuesday, March 14, the board has moved its meeting to Monday, March 13. It will still take place at 7 p.m. at the Mann House.

None of the office-seekers face challengers, so the library will not host a candidates night this year. Lavoie is the selectman up for reelection.
