BOS WEEKLY UPDATE – May 23, 2019

Complete Streets Update: Bids were due back on the Downtown Improvement Project Phase II on May 8th. Unfortunately the Town did not receive any bids for this project. The Town will be contacting the Complete Streets grants coordinators to understand our options going forward, with our sites on the rebidding for a fall of 2019 or Spring/Summer 2020 construction season. Thanks to everyone for their input during this process. We will continue to update as information becomes available. Any questions please contact DPW Director Chuck Dam at 978-526-1242.

TA Drop-in Hours:  Town Administrator Greg Federspiel has drop-in hours twice a month for residents who have a question or other need, no appointment necessary.  Drop in hours are normally the second Thursdays of the month at noon and the fourth Thursdays at 5:30.  For May this is the 9th at noon and the 23rd at 5:30.  Of course, other times by appointment are always an option.

Recycling Awareness efforts:  Receive an “OOPS” sticker?  Just trying to help you help us!  We are working to clean up our recyclable goods in order to avoid paying penalties for contaminated loads. Changes in the recycling market are requiring a higher standard of pure recyclable materials free from non-recyclable products.  Please avoid using or putting any plastic bags with your recyclable items – use bins or a trash can marked recyclables.  For a complete list of do’s and don’ts, go to the DPW’s recycling page on the Town’s web site.

Immediate Openings: There is an immediate opening for an alternate committee member on the Zoning Board of Appeals as well as openings on the Animal Control Board, please contact Sonja Nathan at 978-526-2000 or nathans@manchester.ma.us  for more information if you are interested.

Trash, Recycling, Compost: Delayed one day due to the Memorial Day Holiday
