Meeting Before the Meeting

by Bobby Blair
October 31, 2018

Selectmen Monday night held a business meeting in the high school library prior to the Fall Special Town Meeting. The board accepted on condition of clarification a donation to town's Conservation Fund in the amount of $150,000 from the Audubon Society. The donation is in part a prior agreement for land purchased at the Holliston/Ashland line known as Warren Woods. Selectmen also accepted a donation in the amount of $10,000 for the fire department from the Birch Foundation.

The following appointments were made: John Drohan to the HCAT Board of Directors, Liz Greendale to the Pinecrest Clubhouse Committee, and Joseph Waugh to the Golf Course Advisory Committee.

Several Mudville neighbors appeared before the board to voice their displeasure about increased traffic. Ann Jackman told the board that traffic has increased significantly since the lights were installed and she believes it is the drivers not wanting to wait for the lights to change. Tina Lingham pressed selectmen to include residents when McMahon Assoc. presents their traffic study. Selectmen Mark Ahronian told the women that the number of people using Mudville roads is not going to change. Selectmen agreed to update residents when McMahon's results will be announced.

The Finance also met prior to town meeting and asked questions to members of the town's Community Farm Advisory Committee. The farm advisory board found themselves under the impression that left over funds from the purchase of the farm could be used to install a septic system. Those funds had recently been returned to the town's general fund. The Finance Committee gave their blessing  to the board of selectmen to expend monies from their building maintenance fund.

The septic system supplies will cost $8,500, the work is being done gratis by a local contractor.

If the number of cars using Mudville is not going to change then Halloween as it's been celebrated here for decades is gone. No parent would bring their kids here to trick or treat with the cut-through speeders tearing around our streets tonight. The joggers, walkers, and the day care strollers are already leaving.
