Hopkinton Today: Wednesday, Sept. 2

434

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.

Peter Carbone, owner of Carbone’s Italian American Restaurant, said Tuesday he has been “inundated” with calls from potential buyers since he announced that the iconic Hopkinton restaurant would be closing this fall after 87 years in business.

Responding to a complaint filed by a Hopkinton resident with the state Attorney General’s Office regarding anonymous public comment during the Aug. 18 Select Board meeting, town counsel Ray Miyares told the board at Tuesday’s meeting there was no violation.

Legacy Farms developer Roy MacDowell checked in with the Select Board Tuesday night to discuss the status of Legacy Farms Road North, which the town is considering accepting as a public road for the primary purpose of allowing school buses to travel on it and make the situation safer for schoolchildren in that neighborhood. MacDowell said his crews continue to get the area in shape so that the town is comfortable with its condition before voting at Town Meeting.

The latest Police Log has multiple cases of a mailbox allegedly being struck by a watermelon, kids on top of a school roof and lost dogs.

Today is the Hopkinton High School Diversity Club’s Chalk It Up event, from 2-4 p.m.

The Appropriation Committee meets tonight (6), as does the Permanent Building Committee (6:30). School Committee office hours have been canceled.
