Selectmen Approve Marijuana Testing Lab

by Bobby Blair
December 4, 2018

Selectmen met Monday night with Mike Cummings, right & Patrick Hylton of MPT Massachusetts Laboratory LLC. The pair requested and received a Community Host Agreement to run a marijuana testing lab at 201 Summer Street. The company would not be in operation for at least a 6 month to year timeline pending state approval. While initial lab tech's would number 4-5, that number could rise to 12-15 including drivers and management according to Hylton.

Two dozen Mudvillian's attended the Monday night discussion about downtown traffic. Chairman Jay Marsden told those assembled that Police Chief Matt Stone, Fire Chief Mike Cassidy, & DPW Sean Reese had met with Town Administrator Jeff Ritter and had come up with nine safety improvements for the Mudville neighborhood. Marsden noted that the group had eliminated the need for one-way streets due to safety factors for emergency vehicles. Scott Ostipovich of Pleasant Street reminded the board later in the discussion that School Street & Spring Street from Mechanic to Washington were once one-ways when Andrews School was in operation.

While selectmen were in general agreement that the speed limit could be lowered to 25 MPH in the neighborhood, Marsden stated that town counsel had said that a town meeting vote would be required before selectmen could act. 

Brad Lingham, above, of 75 Union Street argued that another section of Chapter 90 Massachusetts General Laws gave the board the legal right to lower the speed limit and he believed it should be 20 MPH. Other Mudvillian's including Chris Cain suggested stop signs at Pleasant & Mechanic in addition to those suggested by town safety officials. Over the next two years Mudville will be receiving new streets, gas & water mains along with new sidewalks & curbing. Others still suggested crosswalks adding to selectmen's numerous list of improvements.
