Narcan proposal sent to mayor for action

Marlborough - The City Council has asked Mayor Arthur Vigeant to move forward with the proposal to equip local police and firefighters with Narcan, a drug commonly used to help counter the effects of heroin overdoses. At the recommendation of the Human Services Committee, presented at the March 24 meeting, councilors requested the mayor to act immediately to acquire the necessary funding to begin training. In making a plea to the council at the February 24 meeting, Councilor-at-Large Mark Oram introduced the idea of first responders administering Narcan to those having a drug overdose while waiting for paramedics to arrive at the scene. Oram said that heroin overdoses have increased throughout the area and this action can help prevent many possible deaths.

Marlborough City Council rejects proposed school budget cut

Marlborough – The City Council denied a request from Councilor-at-Large Kathleen Robey to cut $500,000 from the Marlborough Public Schools" budget at the council's June 4 meeting. Robey, a former 16-year member of the School Committee, said that in reviewing the schools" budget she discovered money in several accounts that had not been spent. Since it is expected there will be additional state funding and Medicaid reimbursements for the school in the upcoming year, the requested budget cut would not hinder services, she said. Ward 1 Councilor Joseph Delano disagreed and said not only would the cut send the wrong message to the community; it may also result in possible layoffs and eliminate pay increases, he added. Robey then amended her motion to eliminate $250,000 instead of $500,000 from the budget. During a prolonged discussion, the council members noted the need for more accountability regarding the school budget process but ultimately defeated the request, 5-6. Delano, Council President and Councilor-at-Large Patricia Pope, Ward 6 Councilor Edward Clancy, Ward 7 Councilor Donald Landers, Councilor-at-Large Mark Oram and Ward 4 Councilor Robert Tunnera all voted against the measure.
