Epsom Board Of Selectmen Updates


Recently the Board had changed the Selectmen’s office hours to add more availability to the public. The new hours are separated from the Town Clerk’s office.  Please visit our web site for details.


Recently Don Harty, Selectman met with the State of NH Historic Preservation regarding the Old Town Hall and Old Library.  These Historic buildings have restrictions and cannot be modified or moved. For example: The food pantry wanted to install a new air conditioner but are unable to do so because they cannot modify a window to fit a new appliance or if the Town wanted to demo part of the older section to add a new addition, that was also not allowed. The Old Library has a strict regulation too and the building cannot be relocated. At the suggestion of some residents the Board is looking for anyone with knowledge of prior agreements with the NHDOT that may allow for future relocation.


At a Board of Selectmen meeting recently, three local realtors answered an invitation to meet with the Board regarding some Town owned properties that can be sold.  The Realtors could assist the Town in the sale of these properties.


The Epsom Police Department just hired Ryan Drown as their new (6th) Police Officer.  Ryan will be attending the Police Academy this month.


Our Old Home Day is upon us and posters with all the fun details are available. Please check our web site.


Part of the Selectmen’s duties is to tax deed some properties that have not paid their taxes for over 3 years.  It is not a pleasant subject to deal with, but it is part of life that we all have to participate in by paying our taxes. 


The Echo Valley Farm Bridge replacement plans and specifications are out to bid now! Hopefully the project will be completed this year.


North Road paving was delayed but will be started on August 15th.  The project will take approximately 2 weeks.  The detail of the road closure is on our web site.


All of the Town information, schedules, meeting notices & minutes and list of Departments with monthly Police and Fire reports can be found on our Web Site at


Mr. Crowley recently donated his family’s collection of old Town Reports.  It is interesting to compare the reports! Here is a “bit-of-history” – in 1953 the Town Officers’ salaries were $900.00 (total)!  Part of the Town inventory and stock listed Gas Pumps and Tanks at a price worth $6,600.00.  The current year taxes collected was $53,149.47.  Payments made for “Detail 4- Police Department was $202.90 for Police work and collecting dog taxes.

Epsom Library News


Please join us on Tuesday evening, August 16 at 7:00 PM for  the final program of the Adult Summer Reading program.  Ramblin Richard will be presenting his “Beloved American Songs and their Amazing Stories”.   He will tell fascinating and unfamiliar stories about some familiar American songs such as “Goodnight Irene” and “Alexander’s Ragtime Band.”  This is a relaxing and enjoyable program that will make you tap your feet and maybe even sing a note or two.


On Wednesday, August 17 at 1:30 PM we will be showing the movie “Race”, based on the incredible true story of Jesse Owens who was thrust onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics when he faced off against Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy.  We were unable to show this when it was originally scheduled so we hope people will come to the library again to view the film.  For more information, call the library at 736-9920.
