Marlborough councilors propose new fire station

July 29th, 2013

In a communication presented at the July 22 City Council meeting, City Council president Patricia Pope and Ward 3 City Councilor Matt Elder requested that the mayor “discuss with the police and fire chiefs the options to extend emergency services including a new fire station on the lot donated to the city by MetLife, the construction of a smaller “satellite” emergency services station, a partnership with Northborough, or any other available option.”

Shrewsbury selectmen discuss fiscal study committee progress

July 29th, 2013

Shrewsbury – The Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen continued a discussion during its July 23 meeting about the town's Fiscal Study Committee.

The last such group had met in 2007 and ended the same year. At a meeting held during May, the board had decided to again create a fiscal study group to seek new avenues of revenue while still possibly cutting expenses. At that meeting, Selectman James Kane had recommended that the board review the 2007 results and then reconvene to address both continuing concerns and the annual budget process. He said that the last time this was done it yielded useful information and thus he suggested the latest such study follow the same structure, taking into account the slight increase in the town's revenues. As had been the case in 2007, the board thought it appropriate for two of its members to participate in the study group as well as appointing some other members. Chairman Henry Fitzgerald and Selectman Maurice DePalo both volunteered to serve on the group. Nine people would be appointed by Town Moderator Christopher Mehne.
