Town Administrator Jeff Ritter announced Monday night that completion of repairs at the town's library will not be complete until the end of June. A letter has been sent to Rep. Katherine Clark stating the town's needs should the federal goverment have extra funds. Water infrastructure and a new DPW facility headed up the wish list. Ritter also said a March 25th meeting with Marshall Street abutters to inform them of the town's plans for a solar farm on the former landfill is now scheduled. The town will also be applying for $249k in phase #3 of the state's Green Communities Program.

Joan Levinson & Utah Nickel requested the board to back their ad hoc town meeting article regarding hiring a sustainability coordinator. A second proposal was also touted by Joan Lundgren called the MVP (Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness) program. Selectmen opted to back the MVP Program.

Selectmen accepted the resignation of Kim Sullivan from the Historical Commission. Samuel Hartley and Alexander Smirnov were appointed to the fire department.

My former employer worked with the health insurer to institute wellness programs such as Fitbit Challenges and mindfulness classes. Health care costs have remained level. Is this something Holliston could try?It's a win for all!
