Congressman James McGovern, whose district includes Hopkinton, stopped at Town Hall on Friday along with state Rep. James Arena-DeRosa to receive an update on the goings-on in town from Hopkinton officials. Among the items discussed were Hopkinton’s plan to connect to the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority water supply, a desire to add sidewalks across town, and the hope to extend the Upper Charles Trail through town.

    Was this a posted meeting? The three items mentioned don’t seem to be the highest priorities in town at this time. Is the meeting available on HCAM?

      I believe it was recorded by the IT Department. Email the Town Manager’s office for the recording. The three items were ones that Town Hall staff believed could qualify for federal funding under the Infrastructure bill, not necessarily the three highest priority for the town. However, the clean water topic was rated the #1 highest priority by the residents in the recent town budget survey. Elmwood School was the #2 highest priority in the town survey but we are already in line for state funds for the Elmwood project, so we did not bring it up with McGovern.
