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 video or two to brighten your morning.
This summer’s national protests that demanded changing in policing included a call for more people trained to handle mental health issues, individuals who would be better prepared than police to deal with those suffering from psychological or substance-abuse issues. Hopkinton appears to be well ahead of the curve on this issue. For five years the Hopkinton Police Department has taken part in a jail diversion program, partnering with the Framingham-based nonprofit Advocates.
The Town of Hopkinton’s Department of Public Works seeks qualified plow contractors, driving their own equipment, to become part of its team this winter. The DPW also is seeking a qualified candidate for the full-time position of assistant foreman in the Highway Division.
Town committee meetings tonight include the Conservation Commission (6:30) and the Historical Commission (7).
