Our League members have been busy the past several months working on a Warrant Article to Ban Single-use Plastic Bags. We were invited to discuss the article with the Board of Selectmen in March and had good feedback from them. This article will be on the Town Warrant for the May 8 Town Meeting. Our committee (Marj Albright, Anne Baskowski and Anne Marie Foley) can use more help getting the word out about this Warrant Article. Please let me know if you would like to help.
Separate from the League, many league members have been helping the Gas Pipeline group which will have a Resolution at Town meeting to prevent the pipeline from being built in Grafton. The Board of Selectmen are supporting this action.
Candidates’ Night is coming up soon. There is one contest for School Committee.We will invite all candidates to this event on April 23, 7 pm at the Municipal Center. Grafton Town Meeting is May 8 and there will be many important issues that Grafton residents will decide. The Library Renovation will be up for a vote as well as a new DPW facility. We will vote on the Town Budget for Fiscal Year 2018 as usual. Please encourage your friends to come.
