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 and video of the day.
Clean water is a valuable — often underappreciated — commodity, and it’s about to become a lot more expensive in Hopkinton. At the June 21 Select Board meeting, the board approved a 9.5 percent increase in water use fees for fiscal year 2023. And town officials cautioned that the rates are going to continue to spike for several years.
This week’s edition of Senior Snippets includes information on programs about the history of Persia, New England seascape art and how to help grandchildren.
The next monthly Veterans Breakfast is this Friday at 9 a.m. and is sponsored by the family of Joseph Pyne. Organizers will recall several past military events that happened on this date and entertain sports fans with baseball events from July 1.
The next monthly trail volunteer day is this Saturday morning at the Center Trail. Work will involve pulling and clipping invasive plants, digging holes and planting shrubs, and spreading wood chips.
Town meetings tonight include the Parks & Recreation Commission (7) and Hopkinton Historic District Commission (7:15).
Photo of the Day: A number of the homes at the Hopkinton Village Center development off Main Street have been completed, and work continues on the final lots.
