Below, Sgt. George Leurini presented his budget for 2019/20. Leurini stated that the Auxiliary Police donated 1,300 hours to the town last year. Leurini's budget came within guidelines.

Town Administrator Jeff Ritter stated his office had received four bids relative to the town recycling. Republic Services which currently holds the contract has been under pressure by the town for missed pickups. Republic's contract ends June 30th. The board accepted a finalized grant application from the Blair Square Committee. That committee is in hopes of securing 92k funds from a state grant process to be used to renovate the land behind Casey's Crossing. Deadline for the application is February 1st. Blair Square spokesman Shaw Lively thanked Town Planner Karen Sherman for her efforts on the grant.

Above, Town Treasurer/Collector Mary Bousquet & Town Accountant Sharon Emerick joined the review process. Bousquet made a request for a full-time assistant treasurer in her budget request citing the loss of a part-time treasurer due to a demotion. Bousquet said a full-time treasurer is needed to reconcile benefits. Holliston unlike many towns does the school payroll through the treasurer's office. The board agreed and accepted Bousquet's budget along with that of the town accountant.
