Hopkinton Today: Thursday, March 14

by | Mar 14, 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.

The Conservation Commission voted 6-0-1 at its meeting Tuesday to approve the use of two herbicides to control the overgrowth of weeds in Lake Maspenock as part of its “toolbox” strategy for weed management.

Hopkinton Fire Chief Gary Daugherty Jr. and Town Engineer/Facilities Director Dave Daltorio appeared jointly before the Select Board on Tuesday night to request that a Special Town Meeting be held within the May 6 Annual Town Meeting because of budgetary shortfalls for two Hopkinton Fire Department projects and an unexpected Highway Department truck replacement.

During an unusually short 15-minute meeting on Tuesday, the Elementary School Building Committee approved invoices and announced an upcoming community forum on March 27 at 7 p.m.

This week’s Police Log includes reports of issues with traffic lights, a road rage incident on Main Street, and a dead deer in the water at Hopkinton State Park.

Our latest Move In Style Athlete Spotlight shines on senior indoor track standout Alice Brambati, an exchange student from Italy who placed in every dual meet this season.

Town meetings tonight include the Parks & Recreation Commission (5:30), Open Space Preservation Commission (7) and Youth Commission (7).
