Selectmen Sign Town Meeting Warrant

by Bobby Blair
April 17, 2019

Selectmen held a brief meeting Tuesday night lasting only forty minutes. Town Administrator Jeff Ritter announced that reroofing at 1750 Washington Street (Parks & Rec) will begin soon. Grinding of Hollis Street which was originally set for Monday, will begin on Wednesday April 17th. The solar project at the town's recycling center on Marshall Street has gone out to bid.

Selectmen discussed several articles on the Town Meeting Warrant. A question has arisen concerning who will pay for the trash and recycling barrels when new contractor EL Harvey takes over as the town's new trash collector in July. The language will be resolved by meeting time. Selectmen also approved a proposed managerial chart for equity in pay for department heads. The article was submitted by a committee and town treasurer Mary Bosquet above spoke briefly about the modifications to the Stone Report which came out in 2012. Chief Mike Cassidy also requested a change from $75K to $25K in monies requested to update the town's fire alarm system. The lower figure is due to a radio network vs. a hard-wired alarm system. Chairman Marsden & John Cronin signed the town meeting warrant. Selectman Mark Ahronian was absent.
