BOS WEEKLY UPDATE – June 27, 2019

Planning Board Vacancy:  With the recent resignation of a planning board member, the Selectmen and the remaining members of the Planning Board need to appoint a replacement member until next Spring’s Town Election.  Any resident interested in serving on the Planning Board should submit a letter to the Selectmen’s Office by July 16th.  The appointment, made by a joint vote of the two boards, is scheduled for July 24.  Other board vacancies include the Board of Health, the Animal Control Board, the Board of Appeals, the Cultural Council and the Welcome to Manchester committee. 


Singing Beach Revetment work: Efforts to repair the rest of the stone embankment at Singing Beach will resume in the fall.  We had hoped for quicker processing of paperwork from FEMA to complete the work before the busy summer season but, while we have a verbal commitment for funds, we are still waiting for a formal written notification that we can proceed. The equipment will move out this week and return come September.


Note to MBTA users:  Fares for MBTA commuter rail, subways and busses are set to increase 6% starting July 1.  The new fares are posted on the MBTA website. 


 July 4th is almost here!  Manchester always celebrates the nation’s birthday in grand style.  But this does not happen magically!  It takes hard work and cash contributions to make the celebrations what they are.  Please be generous in your donation to the committee and, even better, volunteer to help!  Contact Parks and Recreation Director Cheryl Marshall.

July Meeting Dates: The Selectmen next meet on July 8 and again on July 24.  Come August, the Board will get back to their normal first and third Mondays of the month for their regular meetings. A special workshop is planned for July 12th to discuss priorities for the coming months.


Trash, Recycling, Compost: Normal Monday and Tuesday collections. Remember, do not place your recycled materials in a plastic bag or add any plastic bags to your recycling bin!
