"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

~ Arthur C. Clarke

Mission Statement

The promotion of democracy and community through understanding, knowledge and equity based on complete, accurate, accessible and timely information delivered by a variety of well-managed and cost-effective technology solutions.

 

About Us

The Technology Committee comprises an informal group of volunteers presently anchored by Select Board representative Lonnie Taylor and the town's contract Network Administrator. 

Based upon the decisions, priorities and needs of the deciders, we are involved in supporting just about any town technology-related efforts, among them this very website.  (See our report in the latest Town of Raymond Annual Report for a comprehensive list.) 


Much of the group's interaction--especially troubleshooting--occurs electronically due to our incompatible real-life schedules; but when we do get together, it is in the equipment end of the   Broadcast Studio   on the third Thursday evening of the month, beginning around 6:30pm. We talk about our various projects' progress, share any tech or town buzz, and wrap up after we've compared notes about our favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy authors, shows, and video games. 

 

Interested?

Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings; just check "This Week at a Glance" or the web calendar to make sure it's happening. Everyone is also welcome to contact us, ask us questions, or even to take a guided tour of the facilities. Send an e-mail note to committee chair Laurie Forbes and use the secret word: electrons.

The Select Board is in the process of reforming the Comprehensive Plan Committee.

 

Prior Committee Members

The Comprehensive Plan Implementation Committee (CPIC) has finished its
review and recommendations from the Comprehensive Plan approved at Town Meeting in 2004. CPIC brought many items to Town Meetings over the past few years that were recommended by the Comp Plan.

Some items were approved, some were not; but they were discussed by townspeople. In the end many strong changes from the Comp Plan were adopted. At the February 2010 Selectboard meeting, CPIC chair Chris McClellan gave the board a final report and asked that the committee be disbanded. The board accepted the final report unanimously and disbanded CPIC, with thanks for their six years of hard work.

There is currently no Cemetery Committee.  For any questions please call the Town Clerk at 207-655-4742 x121.

Budget Meetings

 

Beginning in November each year the Selectmen and Budget/Finance Committee plan what the Town will need in order to provide the services which Raymond residents expect. These groups will provide an opportunity for the Town to voice its opinion following the submission of their budgets with announced public hearings in February.

All preliminary meetings are open to the public, and the public is encouraged to attend.
