Sheriff's Community Work Program lauded as success in Marlborough

Marlborough – Like many municipalities, Marlborough finds itself struggling to find funding at times to pay for needed city services. This past summer, when work needed to be done to clean up two of the city's parks, Mayor Arthur Vigeant turned to an unusual source to find manpower- the office of Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian. Over the past year, the Community Work Program (CWP) run by Koutoujian's office has sent crews composed of non-violent inmates near the end of their jail terms to areas throughout Metro West to work on municipal projects. Crews in Marlborough spent several days clearing weeds, vines and other debris from Ward Park and Stevens Park. According to Vigeant, this measure saved the city $5,000.
