SELECTMEN NOTEBOOK 6 MORE Things That Happened At This Months Selectmens Meeting

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Below are SIX more things that happened at the Wilmington Board of Selectmen Meeting earlier this month:#1) ICE RINK & RECREATIONAL FACILITY COMMITTEE RESTRICTIONS: Town Manager Jeff Hull clarified that the article from the December 2014 Special Town Meeting was to raise and appropriate, or borrow, $2.25 million specifically to purchase the Ristuccia Arena. There were questions raised at a previous Selectmen’s meeting, from Selectwoman Jomarie O’Mahony, over whether the $2.25 million appropriation was specific to the Ristuccia Arena. Selectman Kevin Caira, who serves on the Ice Rink and Recreational Facility Committee, said the committee was made aware of this fact at its first meeting. O’Mahony thanked Hull for doing the research. “I’m glad we’re all on the same page — where there is a plan [presented by the Ice Rink & Recreational Facility Committee], it would have to go in front of Town Meeting. There isn’t a $2.25 million check to buy anywhere. That vote was specific to Ristuccia.”#2) STOP SIGNS APPROVED AT MCDONALD ROAD: Selectmen approved the request of Wilmington DPW’s Jamie Magaldi to install three stop signs at the McDonald road intersection, creating a 4-way stop. The request for additional stop signs was initiated by a resident on Tanner Road. Magaldi agreed with the resident, especially in light of two major developments recently built at the end of McDonald Road.#3) WEDDING ON TOWN COMMON APPROVED: Selectmen approved the request of Reverend Grimely from Abundant Life to hold a wedding on the Town Common on Saturday, August 31, 2019, from 6pm to 6:30pm.#4) CAR WASH FUNDRAISER APPROVED: Selectmen approved the request of Amy Bishop, on behalf of the WHS Girls Varsity Hockey Team, to hold a fundraising car wash on Sunday, September 22, 2019, from 10am to 1pm, in the Fourth of July Building’s Parking Lot.
