Officials consider allowing hunting on town-owned land

Continue reading below

Despite some vocal objections, town officials are proceeding with a hunting policy committee that will examine allowing hunting on town-owned land. At a recent meeting, Selectman Glenn Kemper stressed that the committee will focus on how to make it work, not whether to make it work, and that it will report back to selectmen with a “well-thought-out proposal” that will be made public and lead to a public hearing to discuss pros and cons. Kemper said he voted to create the committee because “I don’t have all the answers,” and because he has repeatedly been asked by some townspeople why they are not allowed to hunt on town land. Residents in attendance suggested officials have an informal group meet on its own to craft a proposal, and asked about establishing a group to explore the negatives of hunting on town property. Committee member Christopher Trim said the group’s first meeting is scheduled for late February. All meetings will be posted in advance, be open to the public, and likely include a public comment period.
