                                          At Tuesday’s Selectboard meeting, Chief Steve Adams was
                                          presented with a plaque recognizing him for his 20 years of
                                          service to the Northfield community. Sel. Bluhm started
                                          the presentation by recapping the Chiefs career and invited
                                          Sheriff Scott Hilliard up to say a few words. At the
                                          conclusion the Selectboard presented Chief Adams with a
                                          plaque recognizing his contribution and the audience gave
                                          him a standing ovation.

In the first 6 months of 2012 Northfield recyclers brought materials to the Transfer
Station that were sold for $11,806.72. This money has been applied against the total that
needs to be raised by taxes.

If you are a recycler, THANK YOU

environment, it also helps reduce our tax rate.
