Open discussion thread: Ask questions, share opinions

It’s time for another open thread. What’s on your mind this week, Southborough?

For those of you new to the blog, the open discussion thread is your place to ask questions, sound off on town issues, or share information with other readers. Here are some suggestions to get you started:

  • Ask questions about programs in town or the town itself
  • Post a note about things that you’re selling or giving away, or things that you want
  • Share notices about upcoming events (Southborough or otherwise)
  • Register your thoughts on town issues or news stories
  • Point out interesting or helpful resources

You can add comments to the thread throughout the week. Check back often to see new comments. (If you read the blog via email or RSS, you might want to check the site from time to time for new comments.)

Does anybody have any recommendations for winter driveway plowing and/or front walk shoveling service providers in Southborough? I keep finding that landscapers that come to Southborough only service more limited areas in Framingham or Marlborough, for example.

First, I apologize for a comment on an earlier thread, caused by my not keeping up with parking regs at the transfer station. Political sign-holders can park there. (Still think they’re in the way, but that’s not the rule.)


Can we please have a traffic pattern at the transfer station that works for both recycling and free-cycling (at the swap shop)?

While I’m at it, people, if you’re recycling and you leave your engine running for more than 30 seconds, you’re undoing some of your environmental benefits.
