Kelly is accessible and responsive to all residents and is focused on advancing an open, transparent and modern town clerk’s office. She is accomplishing this by updating online and workplace digital tools, online contract bid & proposal information availability, live streaming bid openings, digitizing cemetery records, launching the first website for the Woodlawn Cemetery and providing online access to licenses, permits and essential information.
Kelly helped to bring some additional initiatives to the town including the dog park, the annual Howl-O-Ween dog custom parade, collecting donations for the local humane society and an annual holiday Toys for Tots collection.
