September 10, 2021 Public Safety Dispatch Forum Next Tuesday By Gregory T. Federspiel
The Selectmen will host a public forum regarding options for providing public safety dispatch services on Tuesday, September 14 at 6:30PM. This will be another virtual forum and the Zoom link can be found on the Town’s Web site under the meeting calendar. The Board is aiming to decide within a few weeks whether to re-invest in our in-house service or switch to the regional service offered by the State’s North Shore Regional 911 Center in Middleton.
The rapid rise in the Delta variant of the coronavirus has prompted the Board of Selectmen and the Board of Health to re-institute the requirement to wear a mask when in local shops or other indoor spaces where the public gathers, including Town Hall. At a joint meeting of the two boards held August 19th, a unanimous vote was taken approving mask wearing in indoor spaces. The requirement begins September 1.
Lessons Learned and Priorities Moving Forward By Gregory T. Federspiel
The Selectmen met for their annual workshop this past Saturday, 8/14, during which they review how the past year or so has gone and identify new initiatives for the new Fiscal Year. These sessions allow for some self-reflection as well as thinking more strategically about the future.
