Members of the community may offer opinions or ask questions about the Town’s draft fiscal year 2023 budget, which will be considered at the May 2nd, 2022 Annual Town Meeting.
Conservation Commission again discusses, continues hearing on Lake Maspenock weed management
At Tuesday night’s meeting, the Conservation Commission again decided to continue its public hearing on the Hopkinton Department of Public Works’ request to have a “toolbox of options” to manage the invasive weed growth in Lake Maspenock.
The hearing has generated a lot of interest due to the fact that one of the “tools” is the use of herbicides, a plan that previously was voted down by the Conservation Commission as well as Town Meeting after numerous residents expressed concerns.
Board of Health roundup: Nursing finances discussed; post-COVID initiatives continue
They still have to approve it when a final version comes back from the town’s legal counsel, and they already have approved the Town Meeting article, but Board of Health members Monday night voiced support of a revolving account for the Health Department’s nursing division.
The 53 1/2 expense revolving account, allowed under Massachusetts General Law, would create a separate account for the nursing side of the Health Department, according to Health Director Shaun McAuliffe and Public Health Nurse Simone Carter, and would create more transparency.
