The state of Hanover is strong, according to Town Manager Troy Clarkson. He made the proclamation at yesterday’s State of the Town address.

“I was happy to report that, in a lot of different fronts, most importantly on the financial front, we’ve made some progress in really moving forward to implement the Selectmen’s goals,” Clarkson said.

But he says even though it’s not 2009, there’s still some work to be done on the finances.

“Selectmen have set a pretty bold goal to try to get to a AAA bond rating, so we’re increasing our reserves and tightening our spending and really working closely with our auditors and finance advisers to get there,” Clarkson said.”

Clarkson says he’s most proud of Hanover’s new website, which won an award from the Massachusetts Municipal Association last month.
