When I posted the Government meetings for the week yesterday, I included my usual caveat:
Be aware that changes to the meeting schedule are known to happen throughout the week. For an updated list of meetings, visit the town website.
But, the late-week, evening Board of Selectmen meeting that popped up is unusual.* And given some of the noteworthy items on the agenda, I decided special notice to readers was warranted.
The BOS is now scheduled to meet twice on Thursday night, January 18th. The board will convene at 6:00 pm in it’s normal location – Hearing Room, Town House, 17 Common St.
That agenda includes the following items (in my words):
- FY16 Audit Report
- Fayville Hall Disposition – Final report of committee
- Police Dept staffing changes
- Request by St. Mark’s School to move the stone wall at Marlboro Rd intersection (closer to the street, ending off on-grass parking at the field)
- Main St reconstruction easement payments
- Golf Course Committee update (including issues on funding needed)
- Chairman’s report on Open Meeting Law complaints (including revised complaint filed on January 5th by David Parry)
- Establish a committee on renaming St. Mark’s Golf Course
- Potential vote on Golf Management contract for St. Mark’s Golf Club

The board will then recess and reconvene at the Senior Center (9 Cordaville Road, Rooms A&B). There, they will hold a joint meeting with the Conservation Commission.
ConCom is scheduled to open its meeting at 7:30 pm, but the CR discussion isn’t on the agenda until 9:00 pm.
Southborough Access Media will broadcast the Town House portion of the BOS meeting live on Verizon-37 and Charter-192.**
*Occasionally, the board does have late-week meetings that pop up. But they are usually in the morning with agendas that appear to focus on dispatching administrative items that can’t wait.
Otherwise, the board normally meets on Tuesday nights. The previous agenda listed last night as the next meeting, which obviously didn’t happen. Selectmen may have discussed the schedule change at their last meeting – but if I missed that, I’m assuming many interested readers did, too.
