GREENWOOD — Last week, Selectman agreed to always have the Municipal meetings conducted on Zoom as well as in person. The link will be posted in the agenda the day prior, and anyone who wants the agenda should ask Town Manager Kimberly Sparks. This allows residents to participate remotely. A public hearing still needs to be held to make sure everyone is aware.

In other news, the Mahoosuc Broadband Committee is still conducting its survey. It is looking at the wires on every road to see which are under served. The surveys are needed to show that residents in Greenwood need funding for service. The grant money acts as a subsidy for the lagging Internet connection.

On the Greenwood Town Manager’s Kimberly Sparks’ Facebook page, she explains, “Go to: to see what your internet speed is. The official FCC broadband definition is a minimum of 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload. Maine’s definition of broadband is a minimum of 100 Mbps download and 100 Mbps upload. Maine defines areas with 50 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload as unserved.”

Meanwhile, concerning the retirement plans for employees, Selectboard agreed it should lay out what it thinks are the plan requirements, and the types of plans available to reach the right individuals.
