Alma 2024: Moving Forward


Updates on the new board, gratitude for highway crews

From Town Councilwoman Paula Clayson,

A new year plus a new town board equals exciting new things coming to the Town of Alma. Our first meeting of the year saw the addition of a new board member under the age of fifty, an exchange of ideas, and a lot to sort through. Work has begun in earnest on the Comprehensive Plan, Policies and Procedures, Bylaws, and the town’s website will undergo a transformation suitable for our growing needs. We will reach out to our community to get input on not only the new website design but also what they see for the future of the town and get their ideas on how to get there. We also discussed a quarterly town hall meeting to hear from the community and let us know how we’re doing as a board and where we can make improvements. Oh, and a Newsletter is in the works. I’m currently looking for input for that because, as with all the new ideas that are being worked on, Community input is important.

Our Highway Crew showed their dedication to their job and showed off their problem-solving skills when faced with the challenges of our ageing equipment ahead of the last snowstorm, and they not only kept the fleet up and running but saved the town money.

Now that winter has finally made an appearance, I want to express my thanks to not only the Town of Alma Highway Crew but to all the Highway Crews who have put in long hours and continue to work tirelessly to keep us safe. Thank you!
