DAY ONE 2007

Annual Town Meeting Completes 31 of 58 Articles

Additional 4.5 Million Waste Water Funding Does Not Address Future Development

Ten Homes to be Assessed 24K Each

 

By David Hamacher

(This article makes several references to the Annual Town Warrant available here.)

May 8, 2007 — 250 Hopkinton voters attending the first night of the 2006 Annual Town Meeting last night became part of a fast moving, smoothly run meeting, completing 31 of 58 articles on the town warrant.

            Before the reading of the Articles, departments gave updates. Linda Kimball of the Library Trustees  presented ambitious plans for the library's expansion, and brought along a model that was displayed in the hallway (Photo, below).

            Appropriations Committee Chair, Mr. Stuart Cowart (Photo, right), presented a slide show describing the different ways capital articles would be funded this year. “This is the first time we are doing what we call a one year capital exclusion. This means that those articles which are approved here at town meeting, and again at the ballot, will mean a one-time hit on your tax bill. Next year’s taxes will be increased by the amount, and the following year, your bill will reduced by the same amount if there are no other impacts.”

            After Personnel Committee Chair, Dr. Ezat Parnia had recommended her annual salary be set at $51,500.00 in Article 2; Town Clerk, Ms. Ann Click, presented a compelling argument that $56,700.00 would better reflect a salary for both the results she had achieved over the past ten years, and her status within the industry. Her amendment also included any cost of living increase that would be offered to any other town employee. The amendment passed easily.

            Dealing mostly with funding issues, Articles 3-12 passed easily with little debate. Comprehensive presentations from Ms. Marie Eldridge for the By-Law Review Committee, School Committee Chair Ms. Rebecca Robak, Planning Board Chair Mr. Mark Abate, and Appropriations Chair, Mr. Cowart reduced the need for much debate from the floor. The Fiscal Year (FY ’08) Operating Budget of the Town in the amount of $23,691,736.22 was approved, along with $31,204,200.06 for the local education budget, and several by-law and zoning changes outlined in the articles.

            $775,825.07 for expenses of the Sewer Department for 2008 was approved with $750,664.07 coming from revenues received by the department in FY ’08, and $25,161.00 to be raised by taxation. Mr. Cowart explained that the total expenses would actually come out of the Operating Budget. Two articles (9 and 11) covering existing Water and Sewer debt service in the amount of $1,661,095 were approved, along with Article10 for wages, salaries, expenses, shared costs and fringe benefits for the Water Department. This amount will be funded by the Water Enterprises, Fund, taxation, and FY ’08 revenues. FULL DAY ONE STORY

Endorsement for Brian Herr for Selectman

Dear Editor:

 

I am writing to you today to endorse my friend and colleague, Brian Herr, for Selectman.  For the 5 years I have known Brian, I have witnessed his passion for Hopkinton.  In my mind, he is an extraordinary candidate for the Board of Selectmen.  He is the energetic, well-rounded leader we all want to represent us.

 

Brian has integrity.  I have seen the way he interacts with others.  He treats everyone with respect.  He listens intently and responds with empathy.  He is forward-looking; he only looks back to learn from the past and apply his experiences to future opportunities.  FULL LETTER

Taurus Chosen as partner for Weston Nurseries purchase

Possible conflict of interest alleged

 

by Robert Falcione

May 7, 2007 — The Land Use Study Committee has taken perhaps the most important vote since their inception following the disclosure of the sale of Weston Nurseries land in 2005. This morning they voted overwhelmingly to recommend to the Selectmen that Taurus New England be chosen as the developer for the Trust For Public Land in the matter of the possible partnership with TPL in the development of Weston Nurseries land. Boulder Capital, which had been pitched as another suitor, also has a Purchase and Sale with Weston Nurseries. Boulder will get another shot at it at by inference at the Special Town Meeting on June 11 if the town takes no action on its options to purchase outright or to assign its rights.

      At that Special Town Meeting, the town will vote either to assign the Chapter 61A right of first refusal to TPL, or purchase the land outright. If the town votes to do nothing, Boulder is expected to follow through with a plan that will involve a greater amount of development.

      Many of the members of the committee who voted for Taurus today gave greater conservation, open space, lower density and quality of life issues as the reasons for their choice.

      One sour note this morning was the revelation by committee member Eric Sonnett that TPL had sent a letter (Read letter) to the Town disclosing that Badge Blackett, their representative in the process, has a part-time consulting job with Taurus New England Land Ventures company, a sister company of the Taurus New England entity that won the approval of the committee today, after having heard presentations (See Clips) by Taurus, Boulder and Mr. Blackett on other occasions.

      The TPL letter discloses the relationship, but denies that a conflict exists.

      Member Muriel Kramer, Selectmen Chair, promised to follow up with an opinion from Town Counsel on the issue of a conflict.

      Mr. Perry will have a slide to present to Town Meeting this evening.    

Love for Jerry at Tennis Club

May 6, 2007 — On the Friday before Christmas, 2006, Tennis Pro Jerry Higgins complained of a pain that turned out to be a spinal abscess that masqueraded as a stiff neck for nearly a week. As a result, the infection spread, causing paralysis of the lower extremities as well as substantial loss in his upper extremities. The condition has not improved.

     The love of the sport that moved Mr. Higgins to give up a successful fish market 30 years ago was evident in the amount of people who showed up at his benefit at the Westborough Tennis & Swim Club, and the love they expressed for him, a benefit that was organized to help defray over $300,000 in first year expenses.

     Mr. Higgins coached tennis at clubs throughout the area as well as at the Hopkinton tennis courts.

    To hear some strong testimonials from former students, and from Matt Siegel from KISS 108, play the movie above. And there is a thank-you from Mr. Higgins himself.

STATE REPRESENTATIVES SECURE STATE FUNDING FOR

495/METROWEST CORRIDOR PARTNERSHIP IN HOUSE BUDGET

 

May 5, 2007 — During floor discussions on the state budget in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, the 495/MetroWest delegation’s House members secured a legislative earmark of $250,000 for the 495/MetroWest Corridor Partnership.

 

These funds were secured via a budget amendment filed by State Representatives Stephen LeDuc, Paul Loscocco (File photo), James Vallee, and David Linsky, and co-sponsored by ten other members State Representatives Pam Richardson, Harold Naughton, Thomas Conroy, John Fernandes, Geoffrey Hall, George Peterson, Karyn Polito, Richard Ross, Tom Sannicandro, and Alice Peisch.

 

The Partnership is a non-profit advocacy organization serving thirty-two towns, over half a million residents, and an employment base of $13.5 Billion – second only to Boston’s – by addressing regional needs through public / private collaboration, and by enhancing the economic vitality and quality of life while sustaining natural resources.  Accordingly, the Partnership is charged with addressing regional constraints and limitations, and has been conducting numerous initiatives on housing, transportation, brownfields, workforce, and water supply issues.

 

“These legislators have been real leaders on behalf of the region,” pointed out Paul Matthews, the Partnership’s Executive Director.  “This support in the House budget is a crucial commitment to the 495/MetroWest region and the Partnership’s principles of public-private collaboration.  We’d like to especially thank the lead sponsors of this amendment - Representatives LeDuc, Loscocco, Linsky, and Vallee, who made the Partnership’s funding one of their top priorities during such a difficult budget year.”

 

Budget deliberations now move the State Senate, where the Senate Ways and Means Committee is developing their budget proposal for debate later this spring.

Hopkinton 15, Millis 7

by Peter Marso

May 4, 2007 — The Hopkinton Hillers Baseball team returned back to its winning ways with a 15-7 victory over a stubborn Millis Mohawk outfit Friday in Hopkinton. The Victory enables the Stickney nine to up its record to 6-3 overall in the Tri-valley League race.

     The Hillers got excellent pitching from Adam Merzel ( coming back from injury) and he helped his own cause by belting a Homerun as well. Mark Sanborn also hit a big homerun to give the hillers the victory. Dan Muscatello and Brian Doyle also added big hits as the Hiller offense just was not to be denied.

     Merzel hopes to take his skills to Emory (Atlanta) and join their baseball team. With proper care this goal is well at hand. Injuries can set a player behind, but Adams determination and desire will help him achieve this goal. The Hillers will be taking on St. Johns Prep (Danvers) Saturday at 3:00 in a non league tilt . St. Johns is a tremendous program and it will be a big task for the Hillers and great experience for them.

Unprincipled Bias Taints Deliberations

Editor,

     Following is a letter I sent to members of the Land Use Study Committee:

 

Ladies and Gentlemen:

The notable and longstanding contributions to the Town of your Chairman notwithstanding, I respectfully urge you to rise above the unprincipled bias in favor of Boulder Capital that, in my opinion, has tainted the LUSC's deliberations.  To do so is to render easy your vote in the best interest of Hopkinton.

My appreciation in advance for your consideration,

Bill McCarthy

Schools Plan for Building Repairs, Expansion, and Future Growth
 

Building Committee to be Reconstituted for Early Childhood Center
Center School Boiler costs increase 42%

 

by David Hamacher
May 4, 2007 — At their regularly scheduled meeting last night, the Hopkinton School Committee accepted the proposal of the special facilities sub-committee to hire Flansburgh Architects from Boston to be the design firm for the repair of the Middle School exterior walls and roof replacement. Members included Director of Building and Grounds Mr. Al Rogers, Facilities Director Brian Main, and Finance Director Geoff MacDonald. Four firms were identified, three were interviewed, and Flansburgh was the successful candidate. Hired subject to funding at town meeting, Brian Main will be assigned as the Owners Project Manager in accordance with state law.
     The committee also recognized that the design for the Center School boiler replacement resulted in a revised cost expanding from $243,000.00 to $345,000.00, an increase of 42%. The increase is the result of the many variables specific to Center School including the need to build and install the boiler in sections and the need to remove asbestos.
      Discussions ensued around the time frame for the schools to prepare a statement of interest (SOI) to be forwarded to the MA School Building Authority by July 31st of this year. In order for the SOI to be presented, the new school building committee needs to be reconstituted according to new MSBA requirements, selected by the Board of Selectmen who will then work with the School Committee to authorize the Dr. Jack Phelan, Superintendent to make the formal submission.   

      There are many challenges in positioning the submittal because of the decommissioning of Center School, the building of a new early childhood center on the grounds of Elmwood, as well as the expansion of both Elmwood and Hopkins to accommodate the total student enrollment of grades 1-5. These actions do not consider in any way, the impact that Weston Nurseries development will have on the town. FULL STORY

‘IF WE BUILD IT, THEY WILL PLAY’


MAY 4, 2007 —Every year, Hopkinton Youth Soccer provides opportunities to play soccer for nearly 2000 children ranging in age from 5 to 18. When combined with the youth softball, baseball, and lacrosse programs in town, there are over 3000 Hopkinton children registered to play organized outdoor sports each and every year. Hopkinton also has one of the highest per capita rates of children under 10 years old in Massachusetts.

What our community does not have is sufficient athletic fields on which they can play. We do not have enough fields in town, and the fields we do have are in deplorable condition, mainly due to overuse. This presents a serious challenge to our programs.

The town purchased land on Fruit Street a couple of years ago for the express purpose of providing the playing fields that we so desperately need. The Parks and Recreation Department has a plan to develop several quality multipurpose athletic fields. Development on this owned land will provide our children with what many of us had when we were their age – space to play. HopNews file photo

Organized sports provide children and communities with countless benefits. For the children, they have fun, develop friendships, learn new skills, gain a sense of accomplishment, and learn to function as part of a team. The exercise and quality social activities will enable them to grow into healthy, mature, and well-rounded adults. For the community, athletic fields provide a location to gather as families, cheering for children, siblings, and neighbors. It is there that many of us develop friendships and other relationships which in turn strengthen the bonds of our community.

I believe completing the development of the athletic fields is in our collective best interests, and on behalf of Hopkinton Youth Soccer Association, I encourage everyone to support this endeavor at Town Meeting next week and at the town election on May 21st.

Jim Hynes, HYSA President
