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.
Following a memorable career at Sacred Heart University, Hopkinton’s Josh Sokol signed a contract with the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings on Saturday as an undrafted free agent.
The three candidates for the two Select Board seats met Saturday for the HCAM Select Board debate, with town staff job retention — specifically the town manager and police — and the budget being the primary topics for discussion.
Norman Khumalo, who has served as Hopkinton’s town manager since 2009, was announced as one of three finalists for the city manager position in Watertown.
The town is set to return to a “normal” Annual Town Meeting on Monday, when voters and town officials gather at the High School Athletic Center at 7 p.m.
More than half of the three-hour School Committee meeting Thursday night was devoted to the issue of dyslexia and the various programs the district offers to address it and other learning disabilities.
In its weekly Main Street Corridor Project update, the town noted that there might be detours or one-way traffic on Main Street this week.
