Town Administrator Jeff Ritter told the board that new stop signs have begun to appear in the Mudville neighborhood and that the installation of new water mains will begin shortly. Ritter announced that the town is still seeking a full time employee for the treasurer's office. Water hydrant flushing will begin in the Central Street area on Wednesday. Jon Evans from the Keefe Tech School Committee advised selectmen to changes in by-laws as a result of Framingham becoming a city rather than a town. Residents will get to vote on those wording changes at town meeting.

Sen. Karen Spilka and Rep. Carolyn Dykema gave board members an update relative to state finances and activities. Sen. Spilka said that income to the state for December and January were below benchmark, but the state is still fiscally pretty strong. Spilka who serves as the Senate President also noted that the state has socked away 2 billion dollars in the state's rainy day fund. Both Spilka and Dykema spoke of their long drives to the state house. Dykema said she is on a committee looking at congestion, while focusing on commuter rail service and more parking for metrowest stations when parking lots are usually full by 7:30 am.

Town Planner Karen Sherman and Building Inspector Chris Canney reviewed a number of by-law changes for the town meeting warrant. Selectmen appointed John Sullivan as an associate to the Golf Course Advisory Board and Mark Bush as an associate member of the Zoning Board of Appeals. The 9 Green Street Committee was 3/5ths fullfilled Monday night. Appointed to that committee were Jay Marsden, Kevin Conley and Matt Colletti. A donation of $400 from the Holliston Superette to the Senior Center was accepted by the board. Selectmen will investigate the placing of pedestrain signal lights at Linden and Washington Streets and Washington and Elm Street after a letter sent by a local resident.
