First Selectmen's Meeting of 2019

by Chris Cain
January 3, 2019

This week's meeting of the Board of Selectmen was held on Wednesday in deference to the New Year's Eve holiday and trail walk.

The agenda was short and sweet.

During his opening comments, Town Administrator, Jeff Ritter, announced on behalf of the Superintendent of Schools, Brad Jackson, that there will be a public forum on January 15th, 7 p.m.at Holliston High School with the provocative title: Public Forum: The Future of Holliston High School.  More information can be found at: https://sites.google.com/a/holliston.k12.ma.us/holliston-schools/home/about/news-and-announcements/publicforumthefutureofhollistonhighschool

During the Public Comment segment, Tina Hein, speaking on behalf of the handful of Mudville residents present, shared some questions and thoughts about the proposed Amendment to Traffic rules on the meeting agenda.

The Board feels that the changes outlined in the amendment are one step to address increased traffic volume and speed through Mudville.  The speed limit in Mudville will be the subject of a warrant on the May Town Meeting agenda. Down the road (pun intended), new water lines will be installed and the streets will be paved - including curbing to better define the driveable surface.

The amendment, proposed by the leaders of the Police, Fire, and Public Works departments is seen above.  The Board approved the amendment and materials have been ordered to begin stop and safety sign installation as soon as possible.

The Selectmen approved the proposed street painting / marking and signage to create "don't block the box" areas at key intersections in town.

The Board also approved Chief Cassidy's recommendation to appoint one new on-call firefighter and one on-call EMT to the HFD ranks.

All this in less than 30 minutes.
