8 Arch Bridge Committee Met August 15, 2017

August 17, 2017

The final plans and specifications for the proposed repairs and alterations to the bridge were reviewed by the committee with Town Administrator Jeff Ritter.

The committee had a few comments that they sent back to Gill Engineering for consideration before the package is advertised for bid.


(Town Administrator, Jeff Ritter)

Contractors will be asked to submit, as a base bid, a lump sum for all the work proposed. A second bid item will ask the contractors to identify the cost of the railing system as a deduction from the base bid in case the base bid exceeds the funds available. This may allow the repair work to proceed while the committee considers asking for additional funds at the October Town Meeting.


(Committee chair, Jay Robinson)

The current schedule includes official advertisement of the plans and specifications on August 23, 2017, followed by an on-site tour for bidders on September 8, 2017 at 10:00AM. Opening of bids and awarding of a contract to the apparent low bidder is scheduled for September 22, 2017 at Noon in Town Hall.

BU Study Did NOT Find High Levels in the Drinking Water in spite of title: High Levels of Contaminants Found in Holliston Drinking Water

by Press Release

This study was released by the BU School of Public Health on February 2, 2018. The title of this report by BU has been misunderstood. Contaminants were found in the raw water, not our drinking water, Except for naturally-occurring Manganese, the drinking water meets or exceeds the standards. "The researchers wrote that the findings suggest the area’s aquifer system is also vulnerable." The Water Department has tested for many of the other chemicals in the driniking water and found none. The wells referred to were private wells.
