BOAIUD OF SELECTMEN/TOWN MANAGER - ANNUAL REPORT 2000

We are pleased to be able to provide you with the following
report summarizing the events and activities of the year 2000.

The statewide property tax is still in place increasing our
school rate by approximately 81%. The Governor's Commission on
education funding has completed their evaluation of different tax
options from a sales tax to gambling. We expect the legislature will
be debating over how to fund education and our upcoming expectation
is that the legislature will probably not resolve this until the end
of the session. We will be doing everything possible to either
eliminate or reduce the impact of the statewide property tax.

The Nuclear Power Plant will be sold in 2001 and the legislature
is reviewing amendments to the Nuclear Decommissioning statute. We
are monitoring this legislation and have attended meetings in Concord
to make sure that the town's interest is protected.

The Beach Bathroom/Welcome Center has been designed and we plan
to bid it out this winter. The schedule is to have the new facility
operational by Memorial Day 2001. We will be adding curbing and
landscaping along the entire Rte. 1-A parking lot to help beautify
the area. The Beach Civic Association has been assisting the town on
this project through design input, and this spring will be helping to
plant shrubs, bushes and landscaping the new curbed islands.

There are several other on-going projects, which include
sidewalk construction, Secord Pond Dam cleanup and Rte. 107 and Rte.
1 intersection widening. The widening of the Rte. 1 and 107
intersections is scheduled to start this spring. The project
includes six lanes at the intersection plus widening of the Railroad
Avenue intersection and installation of a red light.

The sidewalk construction was started on Washington Street and
