BoS To Do list


Richard DeSorgher recently shared a list of things left undone by the selectmen at the time  he left.  I took his thoughtful list, and incorporated my own items, and came up with the below list of things I thought the selectmen should be looking to oversee to completion, which I organized around the town staff who should be doing the things.  My suggestion at our last BoS meeting, when I shared this list with my colleagues, was that these things get included in the Selectmen Annual Calendar, along with those things that the selectmen need to do every year, which I highlighted from past lists i included.  Mike is working on revising his draft of the Selectmen Annual Calendar – which I will post next.

One response to “BoS To Do list

  1. Pete The list looks good-hopefully the Board will schedule a plan to complete them -not to add to a long list but the other thing I missed was Mike was going to get Dave Maxon to write a letter to the utilities for possible cell towers on the new water tower-do you know if he did that ? Thanks for all you do ! Richard Ps -I bless you every day I take your shortcut through the wilds of Dover, Needham,Wellesley and Newton -a much easier commute
