by | Jun 21, 2024 | Featured: Features, Hopkinton Today

Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a photo of the day.

Select Board chair Brian Herr at Tuesday’s Select Board meeting pushed for the creation of a special liaison for the Main Street Corridor Project and an explanation for the continuing delay of the electrical transformers from Eversource needed to complete the undergrounding of utilities.

The Trails Committee at its meeting Wednesday night discussed the slow but steady progress being made on the Center Trail to the Chamberlain Road extension.

There is a severe water shortage in town due to this week’s heat wave, warned Hopkinton Water-Sewer Manager Eric Carty on Thursday afternoon, advising residents to be judicious in their usage because of “an enormous strain on the water system.”

This week’s Baypath Adoptable Animal is 3-year-old Chloe, who “has it all — brains, beauty and the biggest heart.”

The Hopkinton Trails Club has announced two upcoming opportunities for volunteers to work on local trails. On Saturday, June 22, work will continue on Jaideep Gone’s Eagle Scout project, coordinated with HALT. On Tuesday, June 25, volunteers will finish off the bridge work on the Whitehall Brook Trail at Pratt Farm/Fruit Street.

Photo of the Day: Two alpacas stand next to an alpaca-themed shop at this past Sunday’s Farmers Market at the Town Common. The Farmers Market runs Sundays from 1-5 p.m. until Oct. 13.
