EXETER â The words âcutting edgeâ and âExeterâ arenât necessarily what youâd expect to find in the same sentence.
But in this large and heavily rural part of the state â sometimes considered pokey and Mayberry-ish by more cosmopolitan types â a combination of grant-funded initiatives and cross-departmental alliances are putting Exeter at the forefront of technology and environmentally-aware green projects.
In the process, the advances are saving the town and its taxpayers a ton of green as well.
