BOS Weekly Update - February 28, 2017

Posted on March 1, 2017 at 11:06 AM by Elizabeth Dukes

The new Short Term Paying Guest Bylaw is in place.  Property owners renting to guests for 5 days or less are reminded to apply for a license with the Board of Selectmen.  Letters are being sent to properties currently being advertised.  Anyone with questions about the new bylaw should contact the Selectmen’s Office.

The Selectmen will hold a public hearing on Monday, March 6 at 6:10 at Town Hall to review parking issues on Beach, Pine, and Bridge Streets as well as to hear updates from the Ad-hoc Parking Committee, including recommendations for revised boater parking placards.

The Town has received a $34,000 grant from MassDOT to assess its road network and identify opportunities for improvements that will result in greater access, safety and comfort for all users including pedestrians and cyclists.  Please watch for more information about the Complete Streets Prioritization Plan process in the weeks to come and plan to share your ideas at a public meeting to be scheduled in March.

Water conservation measures are still needed! Despite recent precipitation, totals are still significantly below normal and the Commonwealth has not changed the drought warning for our area. Please be mindful of your water consumption and conserve as much as possible.

Trash/compost/recycling pick up will resume its normal schedule, please have everything on the curb by 7 am.

Have a great week and enjoy the warmer temperatures!
