Mary Ann posted some interesting things in the comments, which I’m making into a standalone post because it merits it:
A couple of things…first, the Town Moderator, Roger Trahan is accepting letters of application to sit on the Town Administrator Search Committee. In addition to reps from the BOS, Planning, Finance – there are 3 at-large positions. Letters are due to Roger by December 1st. His phone is 839-4146 and email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the position or committee charge. Letters should be sent to his attention at 4 Old Upton Road, Grafton, MA 01519.
Secondly, we have established and approved the charge for a Commission on Disabilities – somthing that has been lacking for sometime. Watch the Grafton News for more information about submitting letters of interest.
And, the Recycling Committee is up and running full steam – they recently coordinated a presentation at GES and are working toward introducing recycling in all the schools – yes, we do not have a legitimate paper recycling program in the schools. But, it’s coming – watch for more in the News OR contact Doreen DeFazio, Chair at email@example.com.
Finally, it is true that fire truck – Tower 1 has trouble getting onto Rte 140. A cluster of factors contributed to the design error – street height/curve, truck length, dips in the apron (where the driveway meets the road.) The Carell Group is taking the lead in correcting the problem – the extent/scope/timing of the repair is TBD. At then end of the day, this will not cost the Town of Grafton any additional money. Whew…intended this to be short!
Who wants to pick out the new town administrator? Do we have anyone out there with an expertise on disabilities? And whew, looks like that fire station mishap isn’t going to cost us anything more than time!
