Citizens Planning Committee
Town Clerk / Tax Collector
Groton Police Department
The Select Board and the Police Chief regret to inform you
that it appears we may have another nail issue in Town. An
unusual amount of nails has been found at various locations
on Halls Brook Road and on North Groton Road. The State DOT
and State Police have been contacted and are aware of the
situtation. Everyone has been doing their best to address
the situation. The Police Chief, the Highway Department and
other town employees have been out looking for nails and
have removed what they have found. The State DOT has also
been inspecting the roads. Many residents have also been
removing the nails as they are finding them. In the event
this is malicious, the Town is looking into other options to
try to catch who is doing this. If anyone has any
information regarding this, please contact Chief Bagan or
the Select Board office. If you have cameras, please check
them to see if they show anything suspicious. Be safe!!

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE

WINTER PARKING REMINDER
Now that winter has arrived, the Select Board and the
Highway Department want to remind you all to follow the Town
Parking Ordinance which states under Parking Restrictions,
No vehicle shall be parked on any street maintained
by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation or the
Town of Groton in such a manner so as to impede snow
removal. No person shall stop or cause to be stopped, or
park any vehicle, so as to impede or interfere with the
proper snow clearing operations of the NH DOT or Town, when
snow removal operations are in effect.
As you are aware, snow removal
operations are currently in effect. All vehicles found in
violation of this ordinance may be removed (towed) and costs
of such removal and subsequent storage of removed vehicles
shall be at the expense of the owner of the vehicle.
There is a current scam going on in
the area where someone will call the house pretending to be
a family member that has been arrested.
Someone will get on the phone representing themselves
as an attorney or some other official to make arraignments
to pick up cash bail money. ALLWAYS verify directly with the
arresting agency identified. Bail normally is posted at the
location of incarceration or at the court of jurisdiction.
Attempt to contact the family member in question and
always notify your local police department.
If anyone needs a COVID test, the
Emergency Management Director and the Deputy Director put
some on the table at the Town House inside the door. They
are free so please help yourself!

NHEC- NH BROADBAND
This is an update regarding the
internet service being rolled out by
New Hampshire Electric Co-oP (NHEC).
They are calling the service "NH
Broadband" and they have created a
website for the service: NH Broadband:
On the webiste, there is a place to
enter a physical address and express
interest in signing up when service
becomes available in the area. It
asks for basic contact information
so they can keep people posted on
their progress, there is no deposit
or anything like that.
We expect that the areas with the
most people requesting service will
be prioritized in the build out.
The Town encourages members of the
community to express interest if
they think they may want to go with
the Co-op for broadband. We checked
the map and service will ultimately
cover all parts of Groton that are
served by NHEC for electricity.

that there is a new social security scam where they are

Please do not give any information and if you are not sure
if the call is legitimate, please hang up and call the Town
Clerk back at 603-744-8849 to see if she did in fact call
you for some reason. Be safe out there!
