Hopkinton Today: Thursday, Aug. 4

by | Aug 4, 2022 | 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 and video of the day.

As he celebrates 30 years with the Hopkinton Police Department, Deputy Chief John Porter reminisces about his time on the force and what drove him to become a police officer in the first place.

For his contribution to the series of murals along the fence leading to EMC Park, Hopkinton High School senior Owen Fitzpatrick is looking for the community to lend a hand — in more ways than one.

This week’s Police Log includes two arrests along with reports of a smashed SUV window on Fruit Street, stolen turtle crossing signs and a man sharpening a machete-type blade on Main Street.

Hopkinton Water-Sewer Manager Eric Carty issued an announcement Wednesday reminding residents and business owners that the town is at a Level 3 critical drought status and, as such, no lawn watering is permitted.

Hopkinton’s Department of Public Works announced that North Mill Street will be paved on Aug. 9 and 10 from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. The work will take place between Front Street and the Milford town line.

Town meetings tonight include the Open Space Preservation Commission (7).
