The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: some of the Board of Health members were in the Municipal Bldg, other members joined the public via conference bridge, all to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

Quick Recap:

  • No change in mask requirements for sports, may see change after May 10
  • Improper demolition of building at 76 Jordan Road becoming more of a mess, asbestos found, mitigation steps with DEP and others now involved
  • Winter St deed not filed yet, watching and ready for next steps
  • Grant from Metacomet received, more to come on this as it makes progress
  • Problem with improper addition to residence at 274 Prospect St and Title 5 documentation

Links to the meeting agenda and associated documents are included in the show notes. The recording runs about 29 minutes, so let’s listen to the Board of Health meeting for May.
