Hopkinton Today: Wednesday, Jan. 6

by | Jan 6, 2021 | 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 video or two to brighten your morning.

Hopkinton health director Shaun McAuliffe, during his COVID-19 update to the Select Board, said Tuesday night that the town has 60 active cases, although he expects to see a drop this weekend, optimistic that the post-holiday surge will start to wane. The town remains in the yellow risk category on the state’s chart, and McAuliffe said, “We’re one of the few in this region that are still yellow.”

At Tuesday’s Select Board meeting, Town Manager Norman Khumalo said Annual Town Meeting remains on track for May 3, and the work on the budget continues. Khumalo said he will provide a consolidated budget recommendation at the Jan. 26 meeting.

The Hopkinton Public Library announced Tuesday evening that due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in town and regionally, it will close to the public as of 4 p.m. on Thursday. Library services will be available on a remote/curbside-only basis starting Friday. The building will remain closed to the public until at least Friday, Jan. 22.

Hopkinton School Committee members said at Monday night’s meeting that they will decide at an upcoming meeting whether to request $500,000 from the Legacy Farms host community agreement to bolster the Fiscal Year 2022 budget.

Town meetings tonight include the Growth Study Committee (7).
