Shrewsbury selectmen review financial matters

By K.B. Sherman, Community Reporter

Shrewsbury –The Board of Selectmen approved at its Nov. 13 meeting a measure that would allow Town Treasurer Carolyn Marcotte to sign an agreement with Unibank that would in turn allow residents to pay their real estate taxes online.

The board also continued its discussion of the proposed new water hook-up and sewer fees for commercial and residential customers. Town Manager Daniel Morgado is currently finalizing a draft for the board to approve at a future meeting.

In other business, the board approved the operating license for Alfa Star, Inc. d/b/a Horton’s Market, 117 Clinton St., despite construction work not having been completed. Because the continued delays are having an adverse effect upon the owners’ finances, the board voted to approve the license but hold it until all required work at the market is completed.

The selectmen also noted that the state has taken over the licensing of all caterers. This will result in the state now receiving all licensing fees and will require all caterers to buy spirits, beer, and wine from only “officially licensed wholesalers.”
