Email contact info: B/C anything we email on our accounts can be public knowledge, it is prudent for each of us to have a designated email account for PPBSTC business.

7.Tree City USA: We will apply for this status, as we meet most of the eligibility requirements, including a per capita expense for trees (about $10,000, based upon a population of 5200), by adding all monies our town spends on trees (public workers hours, volunteer time etc), Sharon has this information. The per capita expense is within our FMP, so the info is available. (Total budget, divided by 5200 population).
