Overview: The Townsend Board of Health meeting addressed several issues, including the approval of variances for septic systems on Sea Circle and Adams Road, a preference for a five-year Shaw’s contract amid community feedback, and discussions on increasing prices for compost bins and kitchen scrap buckets. Additionally, the board considered the purchase of a magnetic sweeper for the recycling center and discussed union contract details, including an $850 clothing allowance.

Overview: The Townsend Board of Water Commissioners convened on May 13, 2024, to discuss a range of issues affecting the local water supply, with the most contentious topic being the ethical implications of allocating lawsuit funds from companies involved in chemical contamination. The board is anticipating significant payouts over the next 13 years, which are earmarked primarily for the long-term operation and maintenance of the filters. Commissioners debated the best investment strategies for these funds and the potential increase in costs as more systems become operational. Despite reservations, the potential benefits for water takers and the maintenance costs were acknowledged.

Overview: The Townsend Conservation Commission, during its May 8th, 2024 meeting, addressed a series of environmental concerns with community impact, including the need for remediation following a culvert replacement on Meadow Road and the issuance of a fine to a homeowner for unauthorized property work. Additionally, the Commission discussed a homeowner’s request for a project extension at Pierce Road and deliberated on a potential invasive species removal project at West Meadow Road.

Overview: In a recent Townsend Select Board meeting, members deliberated over various issues, with the transfer of an alcoholic beverage license and discussions on the town’s fiscal year 2025 budget taking center stage.

Concurrently, the board engaged in rigorous debates regarding the school budget for fiscal year 2025, unresolved concerns over the town’s financial situation, and the fire department’s request for additional funding for emergency vehicle equipment.
