Selectmen Meet February 4th

February 5, 2019

Under the public comments section of the selectmen's meeting Monday night, Jennifer  Schyiavoni of 507 Washington Street urged selectmen to vote for a feasability study for a new or renovated high school. The study had been requested at previous meeting by Supt. of Schools Dr. Brad Jackson as well as the school committee. No action was taken by board members. Aislinn Weaver of Woodland Street told the board of her ongoing problems with trash collection. Chairman Jay Marsden accepted a letter of Weavers line itemed struggles.

Beth Greenblatt forefront and representatives of Power Options and Sun Power discussed  a proposed solar farm at the former town landfill on Marshall Street. The potential energy savings for the town the first year would amount to $374,861. The system would be in place for a period of 20-25 years years. The board took the suggestions of the professionals under advisement.

Selectmen approved the Conservation budget as well as one of several budgets suggested by the Youth & Family Services director. A second budget had requested an additional 10 hours per week for a clinician, but that request was turned down for a guideline budget.

No action on the high school study? Get ready to not get re-elected. I will bet residents will start to run people against the current selectmen and they will get the votes. Already been some chatter on the funnybook.
