Five Things You Missed at the Selectmen's Meeting
Check out these five things you need to know from last night's Natick Board of Selectmen meeting.
- A reminder that on Monday, March 7 from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Natick Forever Political Action Committee will sponsor the Selectmen Candidate Debate, which will be held at the Morse Institute Library. The debate will feature the candidates for the annual Natick town election held on Tuesday, March 29. Click here to view the list of candidates.
- The Board of Selectmen approved a proposal for the town of Natick to submit an application to host government officials from Pakistan for two weeks. The officials are visiting Massachusetts to learn how professional services, such as emergency services, are performed in the United States. This is part of a program funded by the U.S. Department of State.
- The Board of Selectmen held joint interviews with the Natick Housing Authority to fill a vacancy. After interviewing the four candidates (Kathy Sims, John Bachelder, David Parish and Meg Kiely), the board voted to appoint David Parish to the available position with the Housing Authority.
- Mark your calendars. Members of the Recycling Committee announced that their annual “Clean Your Attic Day” will be held on April 2nd in an effort to help residents spring clean without creating mounds of unnecessary garbage.
- Congratulations are in order to Carl Cogley. The Board of Selectmen approved the petition from P.F. Chang’s China Bistro to appoint Cogley as the new manager of the Natick restaurant. He first began as a dishwasher for P.F. Chang’s and has since worked his way up to his new position as manager.
