Human Services Committee 8/14

The Human Services Committee met tonight. I had to leave early to attend the public hearing for the capital budget. But while I was there, I did hear some info that may be of interest to you...

1) the Town's food vouchers (for those in need) ran out for two consecutive months for the first time... new participants include a new demographic - "young people"

2) the privately-funded fuel bank may actively fundraise for the first time

3) October is Domestic Violence month

4) say goodbye to the Town's wonderfully helpful social services worker, Aljean Morrico.

and to think we have a $525,000 grant for turf from discretionary funds that could be a better use of our tax dollars if it were used for food banks or energy assistance to those in need in our town.
