September 12, 2017

Co-chair Kathy Shore and Sec. Cherry Fenton of the Holliston in Bloom group appeared before Selectmen Monday night to bring the board up on the impending National America in Bloom Symposium which Holliston is hosting this year. Shore invited the board to the Mayors' Reception at the Sheraton Tara on October 5th as well as lunch under the tent at Goodwill Park on Saturday October 7th. Shore made several requests of the board including signage for the pedestrian walkway from Central Street to the municipal parking lot. Shore also asked if anything could be done regarding the unsightly condition of the former Gulf Station at 799 Washington Street. The property is believed to be owned by Cumberland Farms. Selectman Jay Marsden noted that the former gas station is privately owned but maybe a few antique cars parked there would give the lot a nostalgic look.

A group of residents (below) from Garett Drive listened as spokesperson for the group, Mike Mitchell, requested a street light be installed on Highland Street at the entrance of their street. Selectmen seemed in agreement with Mitchell but must first contact Eversource Electric.

In other business Town Administrator, Jeff Ritter, said that two bids were received for the former Andrews School. O'Leary Builders submitted a bid for $1,000 and Dennis Morgan who is proposing to place 14 condos in the building submitted a bid for $75,000  The matter is slated to be brought up at the next selectmen's meeting for public input. Ritter announced that the town now has two electric charging stations at the rear of town hall for use by the public --- for free. The town has also received a grant of $12,500 from the office of Environmental Protection to study the installation of solar panels on the landfill site at Marshall Street.

Selectmen signed their 3rd non-opposition agreement with New England Cannabis Corporation for a growing facility in the Lowland Street Industrial Park. The board voted to accept a donation of $500 from the Holliston Youth Soccer Assoc. for use by the Fire Department and a $500 donation from the Tiberio Charitable Foundation for use by the Senior Center.

Bryan Clancy was reappointed to the Housing Trust, Hannah Ciavarra to the Aux. Police Dept., Walter McGrath to the Blair Square Development Committee and Utah Nickel was appointed as an associate to the Conservation Commission.

Selectmen approved to expend $5,870 from the reserve fund to fix a failed pump at the wastewater treatment plant located behind the Miller School.
