It’s been a while since my last message so I thought I would bring you up to date on some of what’s going on at Town Hall.
Governor Lamont has issued multiple executive orders to facilitate lessening the spread of COVID-19. Many of these affects how we do business in the state in ways we would have never thought of, just 3 months ago.
One of the most significant is E. O. 7I Section 13 which requires the Board of Selectmen to authorize the budgeting authority to adopt a budget and set a mill rate for the coming year. For Goshen the budgeting authority is our Board of Finance. As a result of that order, the Board of Finance has tentatively approved a budget pending public input.

The Town of Goshen has a very long storied history. First chronicled by Reverend A.G. Hibbard in 1897 with the help of Deacon Lewis Mills Norton’s investigations and records, many of which came from children of the first settlers and solders of the Revolution. Much later, in 1989 the Goshen Quardrimillennium Committee formed for the celebration of Goshen’s 250th anniversary commissioned a new history of Goshen to bring up to date the Reverend A.G. Hibbard’s History of the Town of Goshen. This new works is titled “Goshen Connecticut a town above all others”. Both books are available at the Goshen Public Library and the Goshen Historical Society. Reverend A.G. Hibbard’s book is also made available on line by Cornell University Library
