Selectmen Meet January 23rd

by Bill Tobin
January 23, 2013

A rather uneventful Board of Selectmen meeting was held Wednesday, a very cold night.

The Board of Selectmen, Kevin Conley, Jay Marsden and Jay Leary followed the brief agenda.

The warrant was signed, and public comments were solicited. Jay Leary reminded all to be aware of neighbors who might be suffering during the current cold snap, and programs are available to assist those who might need assistance. The Senior Center and the HBA should be contacted to help the needy.

Jay Marsden commented that he has had discussion on the health insurance issues with the West Suburban Health Group regarding surplus and other matters. Many organizations in addition to Holliston are working on these problems. He stated that he will keep people posted on the communication with West Suburban.

Highway Department Superintendent Tom Smith requested a transfer of $21,277 to replace a truck that recently became unusable that was critical during winter weather. The request was approved.

Building Inspector Peter Tartakoff presented his department's proposed budget for the coming fiscal year. It is a very lean budget but doable thanks to highly technical equipment in use now. The selectmen commented that they have had good reports on the operations on the building department recently.

A one-day alcoholic beverage license was approved for a future wedding and the meeting adjourned.
