Thank you Belmont officials for rescheduling voting to Thursday

To The Daily Sun,

I write to extend a special thanks to our town and school moderators for rescheduling voting to Thursday, March 16. This decision came as a difficult one, but it showed the leadership we have in both our communities as moderators, selectmen and town administrators all work together for the betterment of its residents' safety.

I would also like to remind everyone that voting is still at Belmont High School from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Come vote with me for Sonny Patten, Belmont selectman along with town and school budgets and very important town and school warrant articles. See you at the polls on Thursday.

Heritage Commission asking Belmont voters to support Article 36

To The Daily Sun,

The Belmont Heritage Commission asks for voter support on Article 36, adding $4,500 to the Heritage Fund.

In less than 10 years volunteering our time, successful grant applications have brought some $250,000. in funds, programs and professional services to the Town. One example is $93,000. for energy efficiency, introducing LED exterior lighting, and updating Sargent Park lighting design and fixtures. with federal funds.

We believe in Belmont's proud history. And we believe in the future value of tax incentives for barn preservation and Factory Village District property improvements. For these and other opportunities, the Heritage Commission has sought resources from LCHIP/Land and Community Heritage Investment Program, PlanNH, the New Hampshire Historical Highway Marker Program (Department of Transportation and Division of Historical Resources), and the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance — besides corporate, small business and individual support.

The availability of matching funds is important to applications for competitive grants. Your Heritage Fund support counts as a strong return on investment.
