Re.: Land gift


If you’ll draw up the paperwork, my wife Meg and I would like to donate to the Town of Medfield a small piece of land, located on Pine Street, being shown as Parcel lion Map No. 66 of the Medfield Assessors. A photocopy of the land as it appears on the Map is enclosed herewith, highlighted in yellow. The parcel consists of approximately 6,100 square feet ofland, and is located between the pavement of Pine Street and the Norfolk County layout.

Please let me know if, in behalf of the Town, you’re interested in accepting the gift.

Thank you for your courtesies.

Dear Selectmen:

I attended the Hospital Visioning Workshop on January 11th, and came away impressed with the professionalism of the presentations and the knowledge of all of the people involved who have given so much of their time.

Sometimes, communities have to make a decision without having adequate information; not in this instance. And all of my questions were answered during the discussions before I even had to ask them.
The event was well organized and I thank all of the citizens who did all of the work to reach this point.

Also, being able to participate that day was much appreciated by me.

The Norfolk County Retirement System has received several inquiries relative to the member unit appropriation amounts for Fiscal Year 2015. We have received the appropriation figures. The units have two payment options,

1) Paying the appropriation in two equal payments, one due on July 1, 2014 and the second due on January 1, 2015,

2) Paying the appropriation in a single payment on July 1, 2014 at a reduced rate, approximately 2% less than option 1.

The amounts of each are set forth below. Please note that your  Fiscal Year 2015 appropriation includes prior Early Retirement Incentives (ERIs), where applicable.

Option 1:  $1,720,395.00 payable in two equal payments of
$860,197.50, the first on July 1, 2014 and the second on
January 1, 2015.

Option 2:  $ 1,686,967.00 due in full on July 1, 2014.

The actual appropriation bills will be sent out at a later date.

We hope the above information is helpful. If you have any questions, please contact
