The annual "Taste of Sandwich" will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, and City Treasurer Pete Dell told the Sandwich City Council on Monday that he would like to see the event expand.

Local businesses serve food to participants, who purchase one ticket.  The city provides hot dogs for the event.  A craft fair follows the next day in tents that are set up in downtown Sandwich.

At Monday's regular council meeting, Dell talked about expanding the event to include beer and a band.

Sandwich Mayor Todd Latham is in favor of expanding the Taste next year.

Latham said he hopes to sit down with community leaders to determine the viability of expanding the "Taste of Sandwich."

In other business, the Sandwich City Council unanimously approved a $277,156.40 installment payment to Harbour Contractors for continued work on the new Public Safety Complex.

Police Chief Jim Bianchi gave the council an update on the work.

Mayor Latham also announced that Chris Frederick has resigned as Superintendent of Wastewater for the city.  Frederick's last day will be Oct. 29.
