Do you have stories about "Slippery Rock" located behind the Belmont Mill?

In 2013, the Town purchased a covered pedestrian bridge from the City of Dover for $1. It was transported to Belmont by Leslie E. Roberts, LLC. 

On Tuesday, December 8th, a section of the bridge was placed over the Tioga River behind the Belmont Mill. The bridge section was moved from the Belmont Highway Department to the site and placed across the river by Leslie E. Roberts, LLC (Mark Roberts and sons). Volunteers have been working at the site since early fall to prepare it for the bridge placement. 

During the placement of the bridge we heard numerous stories regarding "Slippery Rock" which is just below the bridge. We are hoping you can send along your stories of Slippery Rock to the Board of Selectmen at belmontbos@belmontnh.org. We look forward to your submissions!

Police Sponsor Prescription Drug Drop-Off Box

Do you have Prescription Drugs that you no longer use?

The Belmont Police Department is a one of growing number of police departments across the U.S. that have added a prescription drug drop-off box to allow people to safely and properly dispose of expired or unneeded drugs. 

Medicine storage and disposal procedures must also consider poisoning and substance abuse concerns. 

The common concern with people flushing old prescriptions down the toilet is one of the worst ways of disposal. Some of those drugs could eventually end up back in the water supply.
