Brett F. Marcimo, manager of Full Throttle Marine, 152 Hartford Turnpike, appeared before the board to request a Commercial Garage License. Board of Selectmen Chair Maurice DePalo asked Marcimo if he had been in contact with the town's building and plumbing inspectors regarding the necessary engineering to be completed for operating such a business pertaining to drain and grease trap requirements. Marcimo replied that the building's owner had been informed of the improvements required before an occupancy permit could be issued. The board then unanimously agreed to issue the license pending the issuance of the operating permit.
William J. Rand, manager of Rand's Automotive Center and Rand's Towing Service, Inc., 185 Memorial Drive, appeared to request a Class II Automobile Sales License. He told the board that he had been in business for 33 years and wanted permission to keep a small stock of used cars for sale on his lot. Noting that he also needs a permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals, the board unanimously granted the license.
The board also approved appointments for residents to two town committees.
Larry Barbash, James Brown, Martha Gach, and Mindy McKenzie-Herbert were reappointed to the Open Space and Recreation Committee. Their appointments will all expire on June 30, 2014.
Sandra McManus, William Sigalis, Elizabeth Leitko, and Linda Cavallero were appointed to the Shrewsbury Cultural Council. Those appointments will end in 2016.
In other business, Town Manager Daniel Morgado praised the town's employees for their exemplary work in digging-out from the blizzard of 2013.
