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.
Given the recent debate over the Select Board’s role in the hiring and promotion of police officers in Hopkinton and the shortage of officers, a candidate who had his conditional offer of employment rescinded in August is speaking out and questioning why he was not selected.
The Conservation Commission met in person at the Hopkinton Senior Center on Tuesday night, where it approved improvements to a soil absorption system, plans by the MBTA to do sedimentation sampling, and two notices of intent for single-family homes.
This week’s Police Log includes reports of multiple hit-and-run accidents, youths causing problems for downtown businesses and a rock thrown through a window.
The season Hopkinton High School girls volleyball put together in 2022 included a winning record and a trip to the state tournament. While it would have been a banner campaign for many programs around the state, the Hillers were not used to a first-round exit after winning a state championship the year before. But heading into the final days of the 2023 regular season, Hopkinton has a strong group of experienced players and a record that once again has the Hillers among the state’s best.
Town meetings tonight include the Select Board (6) and MetroWest Commission on the Status of Women (7).
