Illegal meeting warned, then cancelled

WELLS RIVER—The governing body of Wells River Village is bereft of a quorum after the resignation of one member and the sudden passing of another.
The village, incorporated in 1888, is an independent subdivision within the town of Newbury. It maintains a municipal water and wastewater system and its own highway department serving a village population of approximately 399 people, according to the 2010 census.
A three-member board of trustees oversees these services and a village clerk, holding an annual meeting and elections the third Tuesday each March.
