Selectmen Talk Trash Again

Selectmen Wednesday night urged residents to place their trash barrels at the end of their driveway and not on the sidewalk so the sidewalk plow doesn't have to stop. The board also voted to strictly enforce the parking ban beginning at 7 am on Thursday morning. Vehicles will only be allowed to park street side in designated parking spaces. Selectmen also urged residents to move basketball hoops away from the street. The warrant for the Annual Town Meeting was opened. Zachary Skerry was appointed as an EMT. A project list suggested by State Sen. Karen Spilka, should funds become available, was formulated and read by Town Administrator Jeff Ritter. The wish list included a request for funds for substance abuse, veterans distress fund, senior center doors and windows along with a vehicle, refurbishment to the entry way at 1750 Washington Street, and new school zone flashing lights.

Trash collection was once again on the selectmen's agenda. Attorney Edward Allcock, below with a gold tie, represented the Regency Drive Condominium Association. Robert Cassidy, forefront, a trustee for the association also spoke in  favor of Regency Drive retaining town trash pickup. Selectmen had set a deadline of January 1st when the residents would lose town trash services creating a level playing field with other condo associations in town.

Chairman of the board Kevin Conley said he had learned that Regency Park had no agreement detailing trash pickup with the town's planning board and suggested that residents could bring their trash street side. Attorney Allcock was pleased that the board would compromise on the issue. At the last prior meeting Selectman Jay Marsden had said he would vote no if the matter came up again, and on Wednesday night he stated "my thoughts haven't changed". Selectman Mark Ahronian noted that the town does not have a huge tax base from commercial or industrial entities, and that by doing so for Regency Park would be doing so for all.  Chairman Conley said he was ending discussions with no decisions made.
