No Water at Town Hall

For all Boards, Committees, and anyone who is thinking of utilizing the Town Hall for an event in the near future - there is currently no water supply to the Town Hall. For an explanation, please see the attached. The Select Board is currently working with our Road Agent, Dean Stockwell; a licensed well digger; and State agencies to expedite the construction of a dug well to resolve this issue as quickly as possible. In the interim, a portable toilet has been placed at the Town Hall, along with a water tank near the rear door in case of an emergency. The Select Board asks for your patience as they deal with this matter and apologize for any inconvenience it has caused.


Through the efforts of Dorchester's Emergency Management team, Dorchester residents can now subscribe to the Grafton County Sheriff's Department CodeRED emergency notification services. For a full description of this service, and information to subscribe, please see the attached information sheet.

Conservation Commission Gets Grant

The Conservation Commission has been awarded an almost $16,000 grant from the NH Bureau of Trails to build bridging, a wildlife/birding observation deck, and trails in the town forest. As the project goes forward we'll be looking for community volunteers to help with the work involved. We expect work will start sometime in June. If interested contact Maria Weick at 786-2852.
