BOS WEEKLY UPDATE – September 20, 2018

Special Town Meeting scheduled for October 15 - Plan on Attending! A Special Town Meeting is scheduled for a town vote on the proposal for a new elementary school along with a two town bylaw changes (reduce the size of the Finance Committee from 9 to 7 members; clarify snow ban parking violation fines.) If you have waited until now to get informed, now is the time to do so! Check out the School’s and Town’s web sites for detailed information. Assuming voters advance the plan, a second vote on the school project will be held November 6th by ballot in conjunction with the state elections.

Speed Monitoring Signs:  As part of our efforts to slow down traffic in town, we are installing four speed monitoring signs, one on each of the entrances into town – School, Pine, Bridge and Summer Streets.  The signs are popular as requests for similar signs on other roads already are coming in.  For now we will stick with the four locations.  At close to $3500 each, we cannot put them up everywhere and if too many are installed people start ignoring them!

Flu Season is coming! Not to wish away nice fall weather but the calendar tells us that flu season is not far off.  Watch for upcoming announcements regarding community flu shots. 

Construction Work: The next projects to get underway will be the replacement of an old water main along Black Beach on Ocean Street and a new drainage project on School Street from Burnham Lane to Sawmill Brook. Work on the drainage project will begin October 8. Project updates will be posted on the Town’s web site.
