LeBeau Reviews Town Meeting Warrant on HCAT

by Mary Greendale
April 30, 2013

 

Annual Town Meeting starts next Monday, May 6th at 7:30 at the High School Auditorium. Check HCAT TV for a complete discussion of what is on the warrant.
 

 

Paul LeBeau, Town Administrator, and I discussed the assumptions behind this year's budget plus the articles that appear on the warrant in an interview on Just Thinking. You can access the show on HCAT TV or on your computer or tablet as video-on-demand at the www.hcattv,org website. Click on Folders.

1) Key requests include $100,000 toward impact studies to defend against and/or cope with a casino in Milford.
 
2) The purchase of 22 acres of Warren Woods (piece is located in Holliston) that will not increase our taxes but will connect a major swath of woods for conservation. After the show, Paul LeBeau confirmed that this piece will link with other conservation land that will go from Ashland to Hollis Street. We can take a woodland walk to the reservoir.
 
3) The reduction of the trash fee to $80. Local officials continue move closer to honoring their pledge to make this fee go away.
 
4) A traffic study of downtown to determine the costs/benefits of the many suggestions made in the state's study of the area. The goal of the new study will be to determine the unintended consequences of the many options, for example, will a light at Central force drivers to travel through Mudville roads to avoid the traffic signal? To what degree?
 
And many others...To get a copy of the warrant, go to the town website. http://www.townofholliston.us/ click on Town Meetings on the left side of Home Page.

The one moving target is the school budget. There is a gap of $400,000 in addition to recently announced cuts to the drama programs. The School Committee will discuss that this Thursday - you can watch that on HCAT TV as well.

Town Meeting needs 100 people to execute the warrant. Please attend.
