December 17th, 2014

The 10-year extension is “a pretty good deal” for the town, Town Engineer Fred Litchfield told the Board of Selectmen during its meeting Dec. 15.

Litchfield noted that Northborough and the 35 other communities in the central Massachusetts purchasing cooperative received favorable rates in the initial contract to send trash to the Millbury facility starting in 1986. That original 20-year deal expired in 2006 and was followed by a 10-year extension that is now itself winding down.
