Kudos to the DPW
Last Sunday morning I biked the Rolling Rally route to see what the families would later see, and I bumped into Bobby Kennedy. Jr. leading two other DPW workers as they mowed and weed whacked the grass and weeds along the Rolling Rally route, all to make the event better for the MHS class of 2020 and their families.
It is the sort of thoughtful thing our DPW often does without fanfare, or request, around town, but about which the town should know – so we can truly and fully appreciate the value of our DPW.
Only when I ran Medfield Day did I learn that it was our DPW that swoops in en mass at the end of Medfield Day to clean up the mess that we residents left behind, such that by nightfall there is no sign of a street fair having happened.

Medfield Transfer Station will be CLOSED SUNDAY April 12, 2020
Thanks to the DPW workers
for adding Sunday openings of the Transfer Station to their work week. One can only assume that the extra work time must make for a long week and be tiring for them.
An appreciation for a job well done
I have been thinking this morning about the Town of Medfield employees who provide we residents with the services that allow our lives to continue with as much semblance of normalcy as possible at all times, but most especially in these truly unsettling circumstances we are currently experiencing. Our water goes on, public safety continues to serve us, the Transfer Station even added Sunday openings, and all the town government systems continue to function, if behind a digital curtain, all so that we residents can continue our lives.
The town employees are providing essential services, so while they likely share the same unease that envelopes us all, they continue to work their jobs. I wanted to publicly share with the Town of Medfield employees my sincere appreciation for their efforts and to thank them.
I am extremely appreciative of what all the town employees are doing now, working under difficult circumstances – I want to let them all know just how much this one resident, one who tries hard to observe closely the functioning of the town government so as to understand it as well as possible, truly appreciates what our team of town employees are accomplishing for we residents.

At my office hours this morning, Tony Centore asked when Longmeadow was going to be repaved, and I recounted to Tony about Moe Goulet having recently presented his plan for this year (copy attached below), but that I did not recall what streets were on it.
Tony, Longmeadow is not!
Moe also has a five year plan, but said he did not release it because there are likely to be so many changes. We told him better to release it, with the caveat that it is only a plan and that people cannot count on the actual dates.
