Renewal of SELCO contract proceeds
By K.B. Sherman, Contributing Reporter
Shrewsbury – At its March 12 meeting, the Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen continued to review the proposed new contract and relicensing of SELCO services for the town. In past weeks, the contract for the license renewal has come under some fire for its proposal to phase out senior citizen discounts. At the March 12 meeting, Maurice DePalo, the chair of the Board of Selectmen, reported that since the board's last meeting to discuss this topic, several minor changes had been made to the license wording, but nothing of any major importance.
DePalo said the board believed that SELCO had done a good job since the last license renewal in 2003 and that SELCO has supported the town well. At this meeting the board was required to submit a public statement of support for the new license, which was read by Selectman John Lebeaux. The board then voted unanimously to support it.
In other matters, the board reported that there have been small changes made to the warrant for this spring's Annual Town Meeting, such as those pertaining to articles dealing with town water.
The board then voted unanimously for the town to participate in the creation of a Central Massachusetts Veterans” Service District, effective July 2013, in accordance with state laws.
