Under public comments Monday night the Board of Selectmen accepted a flag retirement box from Eagle Scout Candidate Alex Walters.  Walters told the board, the box will be located under the 1st floor stairs in town hall.

The board interviewed Jackie Winer, below,  for the position of Director of Youth and Family Services. Winer impressed the board and replaces Margaret Fitzpatrick who recently retired.

Attorney Adam Fine representing Mayflower Medicinals requested selectmen to consider allowing Mayflower to grow marijuana for adult use. Mayflower presently grows the herb for medical purposes only. The board took Fine's request under advisement.

Fine was also representing Mass Botanicals who was represented by Erica Wright. Fine told the board that Mass Botanical would like to set up shop in a 47,000 sq. ft. building on Kuniholm Dr. not far from Mayflower Medicinals. Mass. Botanical would be growing marijuana for adult use. Fine said that Mass. Botanicals would be most likely supplying retail shops in the greater Boston area, including Newton and Brookline. Selectmen took Fine's comments under consideration.

Town Administrator Jeff Ritter is working on a plan to turn a portion of the Marshall Street Recycling Site into a solar plant. Ritter said if it all works out right, the matter could come before the Fall Town Meeting. Selectman Mark Ahronian will hold open office hours at Jasper Hill on Saturday April 14th from 10 am to 11. Residents can bring their concerns to Ahronian including pot factories and the price of wheat in China.
