Select Board Has Busy Night

by Chris Cain
April 9, 2019

Several topics were shared during public comment.  Selectman Ahronian reminded residents about ongoing hydrant flushing and that updates are posted on the town website (and the Holliston Reporter).  Tina Hein inquired about the remaining traffic signage in Mudville (see below) and the downtown crosswalks.  Utah Nickel thanked Selectman Cronin and Town Administrator Ritter for attending the sustainability coordinators meeting and reminded folks that HCAT recorded the session.  Jason Israel spoke on behalf of several coaches about the poor quality of athletic fields around town.  The coaches were advised to contact the park department and the school committee regarding improvements to their respective areas of responsibility. Routine maintenance of all fields is handled by the DPW.

The town administrator's report included updates on building projects, the authorization of the additional signage referenced during public comment, and the Fire Department has received a new Rescue truck that will be online soon.

At 7:15 a pubic hearing was called to order to review the report of nuisance dogs in the Colonial Way neighborhood. 

Holliston's Animal Control Officer presented documentation regarding two dogs, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Celletti.  During the past several years many citations have been issued for loose and/or dangerous dogs. 

The Cellettis presented documentation of recent actions taken to reduce the chances of their dogs roaming.  The Board ruled that: 1) the dogs are deemed to be nuisance animals; and 2) the dogs must be kenneled off site until such time as a fence is erected that is deemed appropriate by the ACO.  The public hearing was adjourned.

The Board heard a presentation from Meredith George, CFO of Mederi Marijuana, about that company's plans to operate a marijuana growing facility at 44 Boynton Road.  The Board approved the signing of a Host Community Agreement and Letter of Non-opposition.

Discussions continued among the members of the Board on the final version of the Town Meeting warrant.  The Board will meet next Tuesday (Patriots' Day Holiday) to sign the final version of the Town Meeting Warrant.

Lastly the Board approved the clarified Reimbursement Policy as presented by Town Accountant Sharon Emerick.
