The week in government: Medical Marijuana Dispensary siting and Burnett Estate preservation

Here is a selection of the committee and board meetings for the week along with my selected highlights from the agendas. All these meetings are open to the public, so you’re welcome to stop on by.

I’m guessing that the Board of Selectmen can expect a decent audience turnout for their Tuesday night meeting. Some will show up to oppose or support the siting of a Medical Marijuana Dispensary on Route 9.

Others will be there to find out if the Town is successful in reaching a new Principal in Agreement to preserve the Burnett Estate at 84 Main Street.

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.
