BOS Weekly Update - June 6, 2017

Posted on June 8, 2017 at 4:11 PM by Elizabeth Dukes

The Selectmen are working on transitioning the current ad hoc Composting Committee into a Sustainability Committee to work on a range of projects.  If you are interested or would like to learn more about the opportunity please contact the Selectmen’s office at 978-526-2000.

Two Public Forums are planned as part of the master plan effort: Thursday, June 8, at 6PM at the Community Center to review priorities for improving the walkability and “bikability” of the village; Wednesday, June 21 at the High School, also starting at 6PM, to discuss possible future land uses throughout Town.

The new Paving work has been delayed by over a month due to the wet weather.  We are still hoping to have Pine Street redone by the end of June as well as the re-striping of the roads, especially Bridge Street and School Street.  Come on sun!

Harbor Security Cameras are being offered through a collaborative grant effort of the US Coast Guard and the MA Harbormaster’s Association.  The Selectmen will be reviewing Manchester’s participation in this effort at the June 5th Meeting. 

The Outdoor Water Ban has been removed for now. Residents are encouraged to continue to conserve water.  A new tiered water rate structure is being developed that will provide financial incentives to use less water.  The proposal will be the subject of a public hearing at the June 5th Selectmen’s meeting.

Trash, Recycling and Compost pick-up will be on its regular schedule.
