New Grafton town counsel has a familiar face

GraftonUptonRRMeet Grafton’s new town counsel: Ginny Kremer of Blatman, Bobrowski & Mead.

That’s the same counsel, different firm — Kremer’s prior practice, Bowman & Penski, has been absorbed by Blatman, Bobrowski & Mead, which represents more than a dozen communities around the state.

For those keeping up with the Grafton & Upton Railroad’s various legal entanglements, this is also the firm which is representing seven Upton residents before the Surface Transportation Board in their claim that wood pellet bagging operations on the railroad’s Upton property do not fall under federal pre-emption. See a letter supporting the case written by state Sen. Michael Moore, D-Millbury, here.

Kremer represented the town of Grafton in U.S. District Court in January as the town attempted to stop construction of a 320,000-gallon propane transfer terminal on the railroad’s North Grafton property, which it claimed did not fall under town oversight due to federal pre-emption. A ruling has not been announced.
