Office Hours Tomorrow 9-10 at The Center
Tomorrow I hold my regular monthly office hours at The Center (on the first Friday of the month) from 9:00 to 10:00 AM (my litigation schedule permitting). Residents are welcome to stop by without appointments 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 at 508-359-9190 or my blog about Medfield matters https://medfield02052.wordpress.com/, where any schedule changes will be posted.
Mini-Town Hall Neighborhood Meeting 6/12
I am hosted a week from tonight on Alder Road for one of the monthly mini-town hall neighborhood selectmen meetings that sees one selectman each month meeting in a different neighborhood.
I appear with the editor of the Medfield Press. Max Bowen, on Jack Peterson’s Medfield Update show on Medfield.TV, which has one selectman each month appearing to discuss current town issues.
On being a selectman
This week seems to have had me spending large amounts of time during the day at work on selectman tasks, especially the Medfield State Hospital. I made many calls and exchanged emails (1) about getting things ready for the Tuesday evening meeting and the BoS discussions about people to be appointed to the committee that will craft the redevelopment plans, and (2) to learn about the status of the ongoing clean up and purchase.
It was reported by John Thompson that a virtual trove of engineering drawings and plans of the Medfield State Hospital and its systems will soon be moved to a site with a less leaky roof. John also reports from his having been in a few of the buildings and spoken with DCAMM and the security personnel that
- the state intends to just leave everything behind that is there
- that one of our first tasks should be to inventory what is there
- that the security guards need to be interviewed before they depart, so that we can learn their understanding of patterns learned from having been on site 24/7 for more than ten years
