Word On The Street

Word on the street — literally — is that tomorrow afternoon the Board of Selectmen votes on a proposal to charge organizations for stringing publicity banners across Main Street.

The small-town, homey banners provide valuable information on upcoming events — and they’ve done so in an eye-catching, relatively unobtrusive way for years.

The bottom line is, of course, to add to the town’s bottom line.

But at what cost to hard-working, understaffed and underfunded groups and charities that need all the publicity they can get?

One of the many events that depends on Main Street publicity.
