Selectmen Meet Wednesday May 15th

by Bobby Blair
May 15, 2013

Selectmen Wednesday night acknowledged the passing of Bob Lindsey, who passed away after a car accident 22 months ago. Lindsey was the Commander of VFW Post 8507 at the time of his accident and had instituted home delivery of meals for shut-ins as well as an Ice Cream from a Cop Program. The Board noted the passing of Greg Schmall, a member of the town's Auxilary Police Department.

Selectmen's Office Hours will be held from 8-9 a.m. by Selectman Jay Leary this Saturday morning at Coffee Haven.

Resident Marco Bisaccia of Highland Street above appeared before the board to register a complaint that his dog had been attacked on Hollis Street recently. Bisaccia told selectmen that his dog sustained injuries. "I don't know what can be done," Bisaccia told the board. Selectmen were open to holding a public hearing concerning the incident to which Bisaccia agreed.

Treasurer/Tax Collector Mary Bousquet presented the board with water and fire bond anticipation notes for their signatures.

John Juhl along with several members of the Police Station Building Committee requested the Board to disband said committee. The Board did so with thanks to all involved, a process which Juhl stated began in 2004 some nine years ago. Selectmen also disbanded the DPW Study Committee.

A very long list of Annual Individual appointments was read by Clerk Kevin Conley. Of note are the vacancies which are unfilled. Those include: Fence Viewer, Local Water Resource Manager, Arts Council (1), Cable Advisory Committee (2), Council on Aging (1), Economic Development (1), Golf Course Advisory (4), Historic Commission (3), Housing Trust (2), Open Space (1), Personnel Board (3), Recycling Committee (3) Town Forest (2), Trails Committee (2), Veterans Honor Roll (1), Youth Advisory (3), and Zoning Board Associate (1). Letters of interest many be made to the Board of Selectmen at Town Hall.

A letter of conditions for an Entertainment License for Casey's Crossings was signed. The license was approved at a previous meeting. A contract was signed for upcoming road and sidewalk work to be done on Church and Elm Streets.

Event permits were approved for a White Cane drive by the Lion's Club on June 8th at the intersection of Rt 16 & 126 (Rossini Corner) in East Holliston, VFW Poppy Drive on May 25th, and two block parties on June 1st for Stagecoach Road and High Rock Road.
