1 – The Board of Selectmen will hold a special meeting on Monday to coordinate plans with the SHERC about how to respond to the current Medfield State Hospital clean up issues. This morning the Conservation Commission issues a 31 page single spaced Order of Conditions in response to DCAM’s application seeking to cover both the oil in the river and the pollution at the C&D area adjoining the river. Congratulations to the ConCom and its stand in agent, Norma Cronin, for yeoman service to the town to make this happen.
2 – Just reviewed the town’s Hurricane Irene preparations with Mike Sullivan – mainly planning for lots of rain and possible trees down. Boards have been taken out of dams to lower water levels at ponds, chain saws readied, DPW employees are on stand by, the MEMA facility will function, Medfield High School will be the shelter if needed, the town’s tree service is contractually obligated to work for the town first before taking any private jobs, and a decision will be made later whether more transfer station days need to be added for brush disposal.
