Renovations to the Glazier Cabin on the Granby Land Trust’s Dismal Brook Wildlife Preserve in North Granby have been completed with the addition of a metal roof. The cabin’s front porch is a great place to enjoy a quiet moment after a beautiful hike.
While mid-January is traditionally the time when the Three Boards—Selectmen, Education and Finance—come together to collectively review budget projections for the next fiscal year of FY22, pandemic restrictions preclude the 18 members of these boards from physically meeting. Instead, the two operating boards have forwarded to the Board of Finance the look-aheads at next year—the Plus One budget forecast—as prepared by their respective administrators.
The Board of Selectmen called for a Public Hearing for public comment regarding the proposed sale of portions of town-owned land at 4 North Granby Road and 3 East Granby Road. Ward stated he received no comments, either written or oral, on the Public Hearing. No other public addressed the Public Hearing.
On behalf of the Granby Lions Club, a huge THANK YOU to all who supported the Lions’ annual Christmas tree sale. It was one of the most successful ever, and all the money donated is put directly back into our community, notably college scholarships to graduating high school seniors.
The Granby Living Facebook group is a proud supporter of the Waste Not Want Not Community Kitchen and the Granby Food Bank. Both charities perform a vital role in our community and sadly this year has meant an increase in those that need help.
