For the Greater Good

I remember as a kid reading JFK’s Profiles in Courage, a collection of stories about eight United States senators who showed courage in the face of great personal detriment by doing the right thing. Virtually all of them paid the price by losing their seats in Congress but maintained throughout their lives that, in John Quincy Adams’ words, “Private interest must not be put in opposition to the public good.”

March Commission Meetings

Please check the Town of Suffield website for actual time and location (virtual, Zoom, etc.) of the following commission and committee meetings:

Local Business Adds Solar Array

A substantial solar array, pictured last fall, was completed last year by Designs for Health behind their distribution warehouse on South Street, across from the new brew-pub.

Town Hall Almost Ready

There were a few things yet to do, but they weren’t expected to interfere with Town departments moving back into the renovated Town Hall after the furniture is delivered. At the January 21 Permanent Building Commission (PBC) meeting, there was a general feeling of satisfaction, and the Certificate of Acceptance by the Building Inspector was expected soon after.

Animal Control Officer Honored

Animal Control Officer (ACO) Paul Selig was presented with the 2020 Paul A. Deneault/Theresa Foss Memorial Animal Control Officer of the Year Award on February 4 at the Suffield Police Station. The award is usually presented at the annual conference in September, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was cancelled.
