- Search for Tilton's Oldest Resident
Town Officials are searching for the oldest Tilton resident so that they can continue the tradition that began over 110 years ago, and present that person with the Boston Post Cane. The last cane was presented to Ms. Rhoda Crowell in April of 2018. Ms. Crowell has moved and will not be returning to Tilton. One of the criteria set by the Board of Selectmen is that the recipient has been a resident of Tilton for at least 10 years in order to be eligible. When the cane is presented, the recipient will receive a certificate noting that he or she is the oldest resident, along with a replica of the Boston Post Cane. A name plaque honoring the recipient will be added to the cane's case at Town Hall, where the original Boston Post Cane is on display.
Anyone knowing who the oldest resident is and would like to nominate them must submit a letter to the Tilton Town Clerk at 257 Main Street or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The submission must include the nominee's name, date of birth along with proof of that date, address and telephone number. Also, please include the nominator's contact information. Nominations must be received by June 12th. Nomination forms are available here and at The Town Hall. Any question, please contact the Town Clerk, Cindy Reinartz at 286-4425 ext 104.
- Cedar Street Upgrade Project
The pavement reclaiming process for Cedar, Pine, Linden and Highland streets will begin on April 23, 2019. The pavement will be removed and any remaining material will be graded and then compacted with water to enable safe travel. There will be signs and flaggers in place to help you navigate the job site. This shouldn't last more than two days.
Following this phase of the project, the roads will be left unpaved so that the utility companies will be able to make any necessary repairs to their systems, if needed.
The next phase of the project will be application of a base layer of asphalt. We expect this phase of the project will be completed by the fall, possibly sooner. The final phase of the project will be application of the top layer of asphalt in the spring of 2020. Thank you for your patience as we work to improve our roads!
If you have any questions or concerns please call:
Public Works Director, Kevin Duval at 603-286-4721.
