North Hat­ley’s new coun­cil mem­bers were “bro­ken in” Mon­day night. “Our first meet­ing went well. Some of the new coun­cil­lors were a lit­tle ner­vous so we were show­ing them how it works,” said re­elected mayor Michael Page. The town’s Code of Ethics for em­ploy­ees and coun­cil mem­bers, first adopted two years ago, was re-adopted for the new mem­bers.

Five res­i­dents were in at­ten­dance with only one ques­tion about the wa­ter plant. “The build­ing is done and now they are in­stalling the big fil­tra­tion units. It should be com­pleted next June or July,” said Mr. Page. The mayor also gave his Mayor’s Speech which will be fol­lowed by a pub­lic bud­get meet­ing on De­cem­ber 16th. “Some of our pub­lic build­ings will need work in the com­ing year, but we need to con­tinue be­ing re­spon­si­ble and watch what we spend. We will even­tu­ally have to start pay­ing for the wa­ter plant, prob­a­bly in 2015.”

In con­clu­sion, Mr. Page com­mented: “I’m look­ing for­ward to work­ing with the new mem­bers – I think we have a good team.”
