Hartford:Building fee doubled without permit


HARTFORD – Selectmen decided to double the building permit fee if any site work is started before a building permit is approved. A policy will be approved at the next meeting.

Elizabeth Gravalos of the Recreation Committee announced a Second Chance Valentines Dance from 3 to 5 p.m. March 11 at the Town Hall. The board approved the dance. Ballroom and line dancing lessons will be given. A 50/50 drawing will be held to pay for the dance instructor and a potluck dinner will be held at 5 p.m.

Animal Control Officer Rick Houghton said he had received several complaints of barking dog. Since the town has no laws governing them, the board suggested the animal control officer to speak to the owners.

Selectman Chairman David Bowen said the new sand/salt shed is being filled with sand. Four loads of salt will be added.
