Mowing bid proposals for Brookside Cemetery, the Town Green, and the roadsides in town are due to the Town Office by Friday, Jan. 24, at 1 p.m. Bids will be opened at 7 p.m., at the Jan. 28 meeting of the Leicester Selectboard. Specifications, proposal forms and details are available at the Leicester Town Office. Work on the town budget in preparation for Town Meeting will continue each Monday evening in January.

Connie Carrol, longtime OV representative, has announced that she is not seeking reelection.
