SALISBURY — The Town Hall steps in Salisbury are finished.

Prior to the May meeting of the Board of Selectmen, which was held Monday, May 6, the fencing was removed and it was once again possible to walk up the front steps and into Town Hall.

The crew will begin the new ramps later this week, according to First Selectman Curtis Rand.

Rand provided a transfer station update: earth is being moved around, concrete will be poured very soon, and there will be no need for any blasting.

Selectman Don Mayland said the Salmon Kill pump station is on...

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — The Board of Education voted to raise the price of a lunch — by a nickel — at Salisbury Central School for the 2011-12 school year. The decision was made at the board’s regular monthly meeting Monday, May 23.
Board Clerk Sue Bucceri said a federal mandate requires the school to raise the price of lunch to $2.46; however, the school is not required to implement the increase all at once. The current price is $2.25 per lunch. The school serves about 21,000 lunches in a school year.
The board voted unanimously to raise the price to $2.30 for next year.

Asher Pavel to cover Sharon, Kent, sports

LAKEVILLE — Camera in hand, Asher Pavel conducted The Lakeville Journal’s Salisbury reporter, Patrick Sullivan, backward a few steps.
“The light’s better here,” Pavel said. Sullivan grudgingly stood where he was told while Pavel took his picture (which he will use for a press pass). And then Sullivan returned the favor, taking a quick snapshot of Pavel for this article.
A retired professional photographer and now a West Cornwall resident, Pavel will join The Lakeville Journal staff for this summer, covering Kent, Sharon and sports.
