Selectmen Meet October 23rd

by Bobby Blair
October 25, 2017

Selectmen Monday night disbanded the Flagg-Cole tear down committee. The board, upon the recommendation of Chief Cassidy, appointed Christopher Semple and Sydney Wulfeck as On-Call EMTs.  The town's travel policy was updated and approved by the board. Selectmen accepted the resignation of the Acting Conservation Agent, effective on November 1st. Town Administrator Jeff Ritter told the board that four resumes have been received to fill the position. Ritter also asked the board to sign documents for a grant funding of $12,500 from the Department of Environmental Protection. The grant would allow the town to hire a consultant for the possibility of placing solar panels on the town's landfill.

Selectmen once again reviewed upcoming warrant articles for town meeting. Selectmen gave a non approval of an article dealing with street acceptance, citing the lack of Planning Board approval. Also citing previous discussion the board will not endorse an article requesting trash relief for local condominiums owners. When it came to a vote on an article to endorse a new all liquor license for a Central Street business, the board held any judgement until town meeting night.

The retail sale of marijuana was also a topic of discussion, with the board recommending a moratorium until next summer. John Henderson of Mayflower, a company who will sell medical marijuana, and has already received a provisional certificate of registration to conduct business on Hopping Brook Road to grow marijuana, asked for a change in wording on the article. Henderson felt the wording would effect his business and ability to move forward. Selectmen asked Henderson to submit his changes to the article to their office.

BU Study Did NOT Find High Levels in the Drinking Water in spite of title: High Levels of Contaminants Found in Holliston Drinking Water

by Press Release

This study was released by the BU School of Public Health on February 2, 2018. The title of this report by BU has been misunderstood. Contaminants were found in the raw water, not our drinking water, Except for naturally-occurring Manganese, the drinking water meets or exceeds the standards. "The researchers wrote that the findings suggest the area’s aquifer system is also vulnerable." The Water Department has tested for many of the other chemicals in the driniking water and found none. The wells referred to were private wells.
