New Sidewalks Coming! - Posted 5/4/2018
Please be aware the town has received notification that MassDOT will be installing sidewalks on Route 119 on both the Route 111 side (Main Street to Mill Run) and Route 225 side (Boston Road to CVS) in the near future. The Board of Selectmen will need to hold a public hearing on the sidewalk installation sometime in the next couple of months.  

This has been an very important issue to the Board of Selectmen over the past several years and it is finally coming to fruition!  We would like to thank our DPW Director Tom Delaney for his dogged determination in working with MassDOT to get this done. You can view the proposed plans here.


New Dump Sticker Policy - Posted 12/20/2017

Effective immediately, anyone who needs to purchase a replacement sticker or additional sticker will need to show proof of purchase of the full sticker.  We will also ask that you provide us a reason for the replacement sticker (i.e. new car purchase, lost).

If you cannot show proof of purchase, we will not be able to issue a replacement sticker or an additional sticker. A full sticker will have to be purchased.

Regards,

Robert T. Delaney Jr.

DPW Director
