Susan Galvin, Town Clerk, joined to discuss new information regarding reprecincting in Milton. Major changes would occur for congressional districts, and precinct 4 will be a split precinct. This could cause logistical challenges and confusion for the voters that live in precinct 4. This issue will be discussed further at future meetings.
Town meeting article
Chase Berkeley, Director of Public Works, joined to discuss a proposed article that will appropriate funding to construct a public sewer on Randolph Avenue, which will be part of a sewer betterment plan. The work that needs to take place on each personal property has caused the cost of the project to increase to about 1.4 million in total for design, construction, oversight, all related costs. This would be a bonded article, and if approved construction could begin as early as summer 2022. He noted that the longer they wait to move forward, the more expensive the project will get.
