8 Arch Bridge To be Completed by Memorial Day

by Bobby Blair
April 24, 2018

Selectmen held their regular Monday night meeting in a new venue, that of the public library as a way of reaching out, commented Chairman Kevin Conley. A hearing to widen a driveway at 15 Taylor Road was continued until the board can clarify several issues with the highway department and the Planning Board.

A request by Shelia Adams on behalf of Holliston in Bloom and an upcoming fashion show for a fee waiver ended in a glass half full secenario. Adams had requested a hall rental and liquor license fee waiver stating that all money raised is planted back into the town. The board met Adams half way and gave her the choice of dropping the hall rental or license fee. Adams took the former.

Chairman Jay Robinson and several committee members of the 8 Arch Bridge Renovation Project gave the board an update and slide show. Robinson said the project is on time, on budget and will be completed by the end of May.

Selectmen approved several donations to the town. The Agricultural Commission will receive an incubator from the Newcomers Club and the Community Farm and a greenhouse from the Downtown Marigold Project. Kerrie Marsh was appointed to the Agricultural Commission.

A lengthy list of events were approved by the board: Lions Club Walk on May 5th, Softball/Baseball Parade on May 6th, Walk to End Veterans Suicide on May 26th, American Legion Food Truck Festival on May 13th, Memorial Day Parade May 28th, Hazardous Waste Day July 21st and approval to St. Michaels Church for a liquor license for their annual auction on April 28th.

Selectmen approved a change order relative to the downtown traffic light project to reroute a previously undected pipe. The meeting lasted 47 minutes.

We should get these bridge committee members busy with other town projects. They've fixed a 19th century bridge on time and on budget. Simply outstanding! The town owes a big thank you to this folks.
