MARLBOROUGH – During its meeting on Monday, Dec. 18, the City Council approved several grants, including:
- $19,800 from the state’s Sustainable Materials Recovery Program. The funds will be used by the Department of Public Works to help offset rising costs of processing recyclable materials.
- $5,063 from the Brigham Family Trust. This will help the Police Department fund the annual Marlborough Youth Police Academy.
- $5,000 in memory of Ernest Ginnetti. The funds will help senior residents with unanticipated expenses this winter.
The council also approved the interim appointments of David Williams as city comptroller, and Louis Turieo as parking clerk.
At the end of the meeting, council members presented Samantha Perlman with a plaque for her service to the city.
Elected in 2019, Perlman served on several committees, including finance, open space and veterans.
“Thanks for the opportunity to serve as an at-large for the last four years,” she said.
Perlman ran for mayor, losing to J. Christian Dumais.
