From Kevin Ryder –
I wanted to update you on the status of our work with the consultants from Abacus in regard to a new Park & Rec facility.
We will be hosting a PUBLIC INFO SESSION on Monday, Jan 6, 2020 at 6:30pm at the Pfaff. The goal of this session is to update the public on the process and solicit information from the public about what they want to see in a new facility.
I have attached a flyer to this email. Could you pass the word along to the Selectmen?
Any questions, please let me know
Kevin Ryder, CPRP
Director of Parks & Recreation

I heard the digitization of town annual reports came up in the last selectman’s meeting, and I wanted to let you know that the library digitized all of the reports that we had a while back through the State Library commonwealth digitization project. Here’s the link: https://archives.lib.state.ma.us/handle/2452/427813 and you’re welcome to throw that up on the town website.
Good article by Mike Gleason on Nick in the Medfield Press
It was nice to meet Nick at the Select Board meeting last night.
The Division of Local Services (DLS) of the Massachusetts Department of Revenue sends me emails with lots of data. I was especially interested to see our colleagues in pain on the attached chart of what towns pay for property taxes. Look at it on-line here
This lists the towns paying the ten highest and lowest property taxes – we must be just off the high list:
This was that same list from last year (which makes me wonder what sources of revenue Concord and Sudbury found to be able to lower their taxes):
Email from Kristine Trierweiler yesterday afternoon –
Phone system went down earlier today. IT dept has been working and it was determined a piece of Verizon equipment in the Town House has failed. Verizon will be on site at 8 AM Tuesday to try and resolve the issue.
