UPDATE ON NAIL ISSUE
This is an update from the Town regarding the nail issue. The Town understands how frustrating this has been for everyone, especially those that have had nails in their tires.
The original concerns reported that nails had been found on North Groton Road, between Smith Road and the dump, which is a State Road so DOT had been contacted. DOT sent a sweeper out on Tuesday 9/6/22. When the Town received another email from a resident on Thursday 9/8/22 stating there were more nails found on North Groton Road, past the dump, the Administrative Assistant forwarded the emails to the necessary people and called the State DOT again. DOT said they were going to pass it on to the Supervisor that there were more nails found and that they were past the dump since they were not sure if the sweeper on Tuesday did the entire road or just from the dump down.
Seeing the emails and voicemails that came in over the weekend about more nails being found in tires, the Administrative Assistant called the State DOT again this morning 9/12/22 and spoke to the Supervisor for our area. DOT confirmed that they did go out again Thursday 9/8/22 and Friday 9/9/22 of last week and swept the road again doing multiple passes both days. DOT also swept the road again today, 9/12/22, and will continue to monitor the road and will sweep it again if more nails are found on the road.
Also, the Police Chief, Road Agent and some residents have been driving the road with their side by sides/golf carts/etc. or walking the road and using small magnets to look for more nails and are picking them up if they see them.
The Town has also been calling the State DOT on this for the last few weeks and this was discussed at the last Select Board Meeting on 9/6/22 between Chief Bagan, the Select Board, the Road Agent and residents. The sweeper had been out that day so the Town had hoped that would take care of the issue but just in case it didn't, the Select Board did say the residents should call the DOT too, not just the Town if they find more nails, because as with everything, the more complaints received the more likely they are to react quickly to it.
Please continue to report any nails being found and the location of the road these nails are being found on. As of right now, it still has only been reported that they have been found on North Groton Road. Please contact the Road Agent or the Administrative Assistant to let the Town know if any nails have been found on any Town Roads. Also, please report anything suspicious to the Police Chief.
We hope everyone working together will solve the problem and hope to see this nail issue come to an end.

NHEC- NH BROADBAND
This is an update regarding the internet service being rolled out by New Hampshire Electric Co-oP (NHEC). They are calling the service "NH Broadband" and they have created a website for the service: NH Broadband: https://nhbroadband.com
On the webiste, there is a place to enter a physical address and express interest in signing up when service becomes available in the area. It asks for basic contact information so they can keep people posted on their progress, there is no deposit or anything like that.
We expect that the areas with the most people requesting service will be prioritized in the build out.
The Town encourages members of the community to express interest if they think they may want to go with the Co-op for broadband. We checked the map and service will ultimately cover all parts of Groton that are served by NHEC for electricity.
