As of this morning, the town’s government committees have posted three meetings. On the agenda for all is reporting out on a July 16th meeting with MassDOT about the Main Street Reconstruction project.

The meeting was to get MassDOT’s response to the final report from the Main Street Design Working Group. Department of Public Works Director Karen Galligan and two members of the working group met with state officials. Galligan summarized the meeting in a memo to selectmen. (You can find that in the packet for the BOS Meeting.)

Tonight, the working group will discuss that meeting. They will also prepare to update selectmen on Tuesday night.
