Scenic overlook marker honors North Country Executive Councilor Ray Burton
A spokesman for Burton said the 18-term councilor plans to attend. It would be his first public appearance since he announced on Sunday that he will not seek reelection due to his continuing battle with cancer.
Officials plan to dedicate a stone marker, honoring Burton, at the site.
The state Department of Transportation sent out invitations earlier this week “to the official opening of the new Mount Washington scenic overlook.”
The contract with A.B. Logging, Inc., of Lancaster for the construction of the overlook was originally approved by the Executive Council in June for $704,000. The additional $175,000 was approved by the council on Oct. 2 to remove additional ledge from the site.
State House Bureau Chief Garry Rayno contributed to this report.
