Welcome to the Town of Hartford Official Web Site


The Municipal Offices Located At

171 Bridge Street

Are Open!

The Hartford Town Hall would like your help!
With the recent instillation of a mural in the Select Board meeting room, we need assistance identifying everyone in the photos.
The photos in the mural were created by local artist Collamer Abbot which depicts Life in Hartford during the 1950’s. It features many photos taken throughout the decade of residents going about their daily lives.
While most of the people in the photo have been identified, a few have eluded us. We would love the help of the community in identifying the remaining subjects in the photo. Specifically the Lemon Aid Stand, The Train and The Camp Fire.
Anyone with information can contact the Town Manager's Office:

Message from the Town of Hartford Selectboard

Hartford Survey Committee

In order to facilitate greater citizen involvement in the 2016-17 budget-setting process and so that the Selectboard’s work on this budget can be informed by the best information possible, on July 21st, The Hartford Selectboard will constitute a three- to seven-person Ad Hoc Committee to design and execute a survey for the purpose of soliciting citizen input on the FY2016-17 Town Budget. The terms of this committee will extend between July 21, 2015 and October 27th, 2015.

The charge of this Committee will be to:

Design survey to solicit citizen input on the FY 2016-17 Budget to bring to the Selectboard for ratification; or recommend that the Town hire professional assistance in creating a survey; or recommend that the town take no action. 
Communicate with the Selectboard regarding needed information.
Collaborate with the Hartford Solid Waste Committee regarding the Town wide Curbside Trash Collection Survey.  
Design survey publicity and response collection process perhaps to include:
Paper surveys, distributed at public events and venues such as the Town Hall and Transfer Station

In order to conform with the open meeting laws, committee meetings will need to be warned and recorded.

If you are interested in being a part of this committee, please contact the town manager’s office some time this week to put your name in for consideration. The Selectboard will meet next week to populate the committee and launch the effort. We have had great success as a town with committees of this type in the recent past, including the Solid Waste Committee and the Municipal Building Advisory Committee, and we hope to build on this success with this new effort. Thanks for considering it.
