Shrewsbury Town Meeting results a mixed bag

Shrewsbury ??" Shrewsbury Town Meeting members approved 12 out of the 17 warrant articles – including several zoning articles – during the Oct. 21 Special Town Meeting. Town Meeting members unanimously voted to allow the town to enter into a new agreement with Wheelabrator. The agreement allows the waste-to-energy company to extract metals from ash at its landfill off Route 20. According to Town Manager Daniel Morgado, the equipment needed to extract the metal would not be visible from the road and the extraction process does not produce dust. The town stands to collect tax revenue on the equipment and collect an additional fee from Wheelabrator. Any such facility will need approval from the Zoning Board of Appeals, Shrewsbury Board of Health, and state Department of Public Health.
