The week in government: BOS to hear on Downtown Initiative and DPW Recommendations for Pine Hill Rd, plus open Town Meeting Warrant

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

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time today to go through all of the meeting agendas to copy links and pull out highlights like I usually do.

For most, I included a link to the meeting calendar with agendas on the Town website. I did take the time to get into details for some of the committees that usually generate the most interest – the Board of Selectmen, school committees, and Zoning Board of Appeals.

Unless otherwise noted on agendas, all of these 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 an updated list of meetings, visit the town website.
