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.
A resident filed an open meeting law complaint with the state Attorney General’s Office regarding the handling of public comment during the Aug. 18 Select Board meeting, when the board allowed two speakers and two letter-writers to deliver anonymous criticism of Planning Board member Muriel Kramer for her work with the Massachusetts Bail Fund.
That complaint is one of the items on the agenda for tonight’s Select Board meeting, which starts with an executive session at 6 before switching to an open session at 6:30. The board also will review the articles on the warrant for the upcoming Town Meeting in order to establish positions, and hold a public hearing on the street acceptance plan for Legacy Farms Road North.
The primary election is today from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. at Hopkinton Middle School. Those still in possession of mail-in ballots can take them to the middle school or place them inside the drop box outside Town Hall before polls close.
With the governing body for high school sports in the state recently unveiling its plan for competition in the 2020-21 academic year, putting forth a four-season sports schedule that moves football to the late winter, Hopkinton High School athletic director Rich Cormier said the main goal this year is participation.
