WESTBOROUGH – After months of negotiations and scrutiny, the Westboro Mobil station on East Main Street will have its Class II dealer’s license through the end of 2023.
During its Feb. 28, meeting, the Select Board discussed the status of the station with owner Jack Azar and his attorney, David McKay.
According to McKay, the log books are in order, a parking plan has been submitted, and recent visits by the police found no violations.
“Hopefully we’ve satisfied the board’s expectations,” said McKay.
The board discussed the placement of a handicapped spot near the station’s front entrance. Azar said the space marking this spot will be repainted this spring.
Board Chair Ian Johnson said he’s noticed the changes, and “it does look a lot better.”
“Keep up the good work,” he added.
The board voted to extend the dealer’s license through Dec. 31, 2023, with conditions. These include having no more than five vehicles for sale and keeping the driveways clear.
Regional Dispatch Center
With three towns instead of four entering an agreement to form a Regional Dispatch Center, the Select Board received an updated version of the agreement.
Grafton and Southborough will join Westborough in operating the new center, which will be located at Hocomonco Pond; Hopkinton declined to join.
Although the cost savings won’t be as much with three towns as with four, “there’s still a substantial cost savings,” said Johnson.
The board voted to accept the updated intermunicipal agreement.
