Board hears roads, speed complaints

ORFORD—The Orford Selectboard voted to accept the first installment of its American Rescue Plan Act funds following a public hearing last week.
The board held a brief hearing at the start of its regularly scheduled meeting on Aug. 25 to discuss whether to accept $68,100 in coronavirus relief funding. There was little, if any, public input.
And while there was some discussion about using the funds to build out the town’s broadband internet infrastructure, the three board members unanimously agreed to set the money aside for now.
