Selectmen Meeting 10/19

by Eric Niermeyer

On Wednesday night, the Board of Selectmen met with representatives of Colonial Power, an electrical aggregation group, and decided upon a new town-wide electrical agreement.  The new agreement is with Constellation Energy Group and will be in effect throughout the first six months of 2017.

The new Constellation agreement entails a very slight price increase from the town’s current contract and is designed to be a placeholder agreement that will hopefully allow the town to take advantage of more favorable energy market conditions next year.

The rest of the night largely consisted of routine business and announcements.  Among these was that early voting services will be offered to Holliston residents at the Town Hall beginning on Monday, October 24th. 

October 24th also marks the date of Holliston’s Special Town Meeting, where all of the town’s registered voters have the opportunity to gather and vote on various capital expenditures proposed by the Finance Committee.  This year’s capital proposals total nearly $1,000,000, though much of that will be covered by existing funds.

It was noted that Holliston’s Economic Development Committee will be holding a meeting on Thursday, October 20th at 5pm at Pinecrest Golf Course.  The meeting will feature refreshments and a video screening and all Holliston residents are encouraged to attend.

The Selectmen also gave a shout-out to two events occurring this Saturday.  The first of these is the seasonal Flu Clinic, an event organized by the Holliston’s Board of Health.  This fall’s Flu Clinic will take place on October 22nd from 9am – 12pm at the Placentino School, where volunteers will gather and prepare to dole out hundreds of seasonal influenza inoculations.

The second event, also this Saturday, is the annual Senior Health and Wellness Fair, an event sponsored by state Senator Karen Spilka.  The fair will take place from 9:30am – 1:00pm at the Joeseph P. Keefe Technical School in Framingham.

Last but not least, the Selectmen voted to both grant a one-day liquor license and waive the usual $50 fee for an Oktoberfest-themed event which will be held at the Historical Society on Friday, October 21st, from 7pm-10pm.
