GAA Fees

The May issue of the Granby Drummer published a letter about the Granby Ambulance Association (GAA) and charges for service. The author suggested that GAA has been less than transparent regarding our fee structure and reasons for assessing charges. We would like to take a few moments to clear up any confusion.

No Mow May

For the past few years, I have mowed a section of lawn only once a year, after the frost. This kept the maple and oak sprouts down but allowed for the development of a meadow.

Thankful for Juneteenth Support

The Granby Celebrates Juneteenth committee and the Granby Racial Reconciliation (GRR) Board and Steering Committee extend their gratitude to all who contributed to the inaugural Juneteenth Celebration on June 18 in Salmon Brook Park.

P&Z Meeting comments

I am writing to clarify / elaborate on my public comments as written in the P&Z meeting highlights from April 12 in the May issue.

Granby Racial Reconciliation

The Granby Racial Reconciliation (GRR) Board of Directors would like to clarify a March 2022 Drummer article submitted by one of its task teams.

Affordable Housing

Appearing on the first page of the March 2022 edition of the Drummer was an article entitled: Granby answers state call for Affordable Housing Plans. The name(s) of the author(s) are missing.

Concern over Kearns property

I am writing with concern that the Town of Granby is considering selling the former Kearns School property. With all the recent town real estate approvals for residential housing and apartments, it seems that town officials haven’t given enough thought and foresight to consider the additional families who will be moving to Granby.

Cultivated meat research

A significant portion of the agricultural-innovation funding announced at COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, should be directed toward cultivated-meat development. For those who aren’t familiar with the term, cultivated meat is grown from cells, without slaughter.

Support for Roberts

As a Granby resident and long-time community volunteer who cares passionately about our town, I am writing to strongly encourage all Drummer readers to vote for Dave Roberts for the Granby Board of Finance in the upcoming election.
