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 and video of the day.
The School Committee began its hybrid meeting Thursday night with a joint session with the Select Board and the Appropriation Committee to discuss the Fiscal Year 2023 school budget requests. “We really do have a very good idea of where we stand right now,” Superintendent Carol Cavanaugh explained, noting that School Department meetings with the Select Board and the Appropriation Committee have taken place since September in a “very collaborative” process.
The Hopkinton Police Department’s arrest and incident log continues to be unavailable for publication, as the department only has released very basic information. Chief Joseph Bennett said last week that he has had multiple discussions with the department’s new software provider, ProPhoenix, about finding a solution. The HPD also is advising residents to be be careful about securing their vehicles due to an increase in thefts in the area.
This week’s Library Corner includes information on programs including The Human Puzzle, Adult Craft Night and Conversation Circles.
Town meetings tonight include the Lake Maspenock Weed Management and Control Advisory Group (5) and the town’s All-Hands Meeting (6).
