WILTON — Selectmen this week approved members for two new town committees.

The Road Committee will hold an open meeting Oct. 22 to begin a review of town roads to determine what, when and how much road work and repaving to recommend prior to next year’s budget process.

Requested by Public Works foreman John Welch, the committee would give a better, more informed idea at budget time, Welch told the board last month. In a recent year, two dozen possibilities were narrowed down to three roads considered for work.

Residents approved to serve on the committee include Peter Chamberlain, Bruce Jellison, Jeff Adams and Mike Wells. Selectman Irv Faunce will also serve, as well as Town Manager Rhonda Irish and Welch.

A second committee appointed and charged with reviewing the town cemeteries’ rules, regulations and prices will consist of Richard Hall and Kent Wiles along with Selectman Tom Saviello and the town manager.

The board also approved holding a public hearing at their next meeting Oct. 20 to discuss the discontinuance of winter plowing on certain town roads. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the town office.
