Latest town news & announcements

Town Election 5/12, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The Town Election is scheduled for May 12, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., as printed in the warrant.  This follows the annual Town Meeting on Monday, May 9.  The calendar on the Town website had originally had election hours of noon to 8 p.m., which is not correct.  We regret the error and any inconvenience it may have caused.

Pre-Town Meeting Dessert Potluck & Discussion: Monday, May 2nd

All Conway residents are invited to come to a pre-Town Meeting dessert potluck and discussion on Monday, May 2 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Conway Grammar School. Please bring a dessert to share that can be served on a napkin, serving utensils (if needed), and your own reusable cup/mug/spoon. Beverages will be provided. Residents who have information about particular warrant articles are encouraged to bring handouts.

Like the past eight years’ pre-Town Meeting gatherings, the evening is an opportunity for discussion that is informal, nonpartisan, and without the time pressure often felt at Town Meeting. Residents are encouraged to come with questions about Town Meeting warrant articles, procedures, and definitions. There will be an opportunity to meet candidates for town office. The intent of the meeting is to help people be well-informed voters and to have some time to think about what is being proposed, as a supplement to the democratic process of Town Meeting. Mary McClintock said, “These gatherings really help me have a better understanding of what we need to decide at Town Meeting. And the desserts are really yummy!”

Recycle Your Cell Phones and Batteries! Here’s How:

Please recycle your batteries and cell phones by handing them to a transfer station attendant for separate processing; never place in recycling dumpsters! As you may know, improper disposal of batteries can release mercury, cadmium or other heavy metals into the air and water, ultimately entering the food chain and posing health threats to people and the environment.  Here’s a handy graphic on recycling specific battery types.
