By K.B. Sherman, Community Reporter
Shrewsbury – At their regularly scheduled meeting June 10, the Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen reappointed Larry Barbash, 3 Adin Drive, and Martha Gach, 15 Rockwell Drive, to the Open Space and Recreation Plan Committee for one year. T. Philip Leader, 34 Mechanic St., Worcester, was reappointed as town counsel for one year. Mary Grillo, 26 Carter Road, was reappointed as assistant treasurer-collector for one year.
A request from Kelly Marshall, 7 Balsam Circle, for installation of a traffic light, was ordered forwarded by the town engineer to the state for approval. A request from Elizabeth Alton, Westmore Road, for a “deaf child” sign, was discussed in light of past policy regarding such requests. As in the past, the Board's consensus was to request that the petitioner pay for the sign and then have the town's pertinent boards approve it for placement.
The board also voted to forward to the Massachusetts Legislature home rule petitions discussed at the recent Annual Town Meeting. A study of traffic speeds on Route 140 was discussed with surprise being expressed at the speed attributed to some vehicles along that route. The board noted that its recommendations for controlling vehicle speeds is about to be forwarded to the state department of transportation.
