Here is a selection of the committee and board meetings for the week along with selected highlights from the agendas.

Two items that are likely to get some attention are scheduled for tonight’s Board of Selectmen meeting:

  • The Public Works Planning Board’s recommendations for the Transfer Station. (Their report is included in the BOS packet – click here and scroll to page 5.) The BOS isn’t scheduled to vote on any changes to the Transfer Station tonight. According to Chair Bill Boland, the board will wait until late spring (as usual) to make decisions on next year’s Transfer Station regulations and fees.
  • Following a complaint recently filed and made public that the Town Administrator’s raise should have been voted on at a public meeting, the board scheduled for tonight’s meeting “Approval of Town Administrator performance evaluation.”

All the below meetings are open to the public, so you’re welcome to stop on by. Be aware that changes to the meeting schedule are known to happen throughout the week. For a complete list of meetings, visit the town website.
