Hopkinton Today: Monday, Dec. 18

by | Dec 18, 2023 | 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.

Lori Nickerson was appointed to serve on the School Committee until next May’s Annual Town Election following a joint vote of the School Committee and Select Board on Thursday.

The Community Preservation Committee at its meeting Thursday night voted against a $1 million request from the School Department to design and build an accessible playground at the Marathon School. Instead, the CPC unanimously approved $100,000 for further study into an accessible playground that would include a wider age range at an undesignated location.

The Fruit Street bridge that carries traffic over the MBTA/CSX Railroad and the Sudbury River in Westborough and Hopkinton was reopened to travel Friday afternoon, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation announced.

The Hopkinton Police Department last Tuesday arrested a man who appeared to be homeless on a default Rhode Island warrant at the Price Chopper shopping plaza on South Street. The man was determined to be a “fugitive from justice,” according to an HPD incident report.

Hopkinton Highway Manager Mike Mansir announced Friday that the town is working to fix a problem with the traffic lights at the intersection of Hayden Rowe Street and Chestnut Street.

Town meetings tonight include the Board of Health (5:30), Capital Improvement Committee (6), Affordable Housing Trust Fund Board (6) and Commission on Disability (7).
