BOS WEEKLY UPDATE – April 16, 2019
Spring Cleaning Time! The Board of Health is hosting their annual household hazardous waste collection day on April 27. Pre-registration is required. Contact Ellen Lufkin at the Board of Health Office at Town Hall at 978-526-7385. And the Manchester Community Center, in conjunction with the Parks and Recreation Department, is once again sponsoring a Community Clean-up day, May 4 from 9AM to Noon with a pizza lunch and raffle to follow. Call the Center at 978-526-7626.
Water main flushing: Spring also means it is time to flush the water mains. Beginning next week our Water Department staff will be working throughout town opening hydrants to flush the water pipes. Typically this work takes place from 8PM to midnight. The process can cause temporary discoloration of the water. Running a cold water tap for a bit usually clears this up.
Town Elections! Mark your calendars for May 21 when you will want to vote for town officers and confirm the tentative approval at the Annual Town Meeting of two capital exclusion projects – a new ambulance and drainage/sidewalk work.
Trash, Recycling, Compost: Regular Monday and Tuesday Pick ups
