Selectman Office Hours this morning 9-10AM
My regular monthly selectman office hours are at The Center on the first Friday of every month from 9:00 to 10:00 AM (this Friday).
Residents are welcome to stop by to talk in person about any town matters. Residents can also have coffee and see the Council on Aging in action (a vibrant organization with lots going on).
I can be reached via my cell phone at 508-359-9190 or my blog about Medfield matters, where any schedule changes will be posted.
I voted just before 8pm, and as either the penultimate or last voter, and being number 97 in my precinct, I think it is likely that about 400 voted today.
Come join MFi in celebrating volunteerism in our community!
The Medfield Foundation is proud to celebrate the amazing citizens of Medfield who give of their time, talent and energy toward making our town so incredible. Please join us on March 31, from 3pm to 5pm at The Center at Medfield to honor all of this year’s very special Volunteers! Let’s come together to applaud the character of volunteerism, the backbone of our community. There will be light refreshments, riveting speeches, and good old-fashioned community building. We hope to see all our fellow civic do-gooders join in honoring this year’s nominees, and giving thanks to those who are dedicated to making Medfield a truly remarkable place to live!
The Medfield Foundation Volunteer Awards are made possible through the sponsorship of Roche Bros. and Brother’s Marketplace.

Kristine Trierweiler has proposed the following budget cuts that were recommended by her department heads, in an attempt to get to a balanced (no override) town budget. On this iteration of the proposed cuts, those related to
- the elimination of the Saturday hours at the Council on Aging,
- elimination of the evening hours at the Town House, and
- Sunday closing of the Medfield Memorial Library.
were stricken and eliminated from the proposal, as not being worth doing for the savings effected.
