  1.  Maple Avenue and Rolfe Avenue Pump Station Improvements 

    • The Select Board authorized the Town Manager to file and execute applications related to the Maple Avenue and Rolfe Avenue Pump Station Improvements. This item is a follow up to Article 28 of the Annual Town Meeting on May 15, 2023, which authorized the Town to apply, accept, and expend funds from the Commonwealth and/or federal government, and to authorize the Board of Sewer Commissioners to make improvements to the Maple Avenue and Rolfe Avenue pump stations and to replace force mains. 

      The State Revolving Fund (SRF) offers a 2% interest rate for issuances of this size ($9.82m), which is a much more competitive rate than the municipal bond market. The loan would be paid back over a twenty year period and is funded through water and sewer rates. 
  2. Special Town Meeting Warrant  Recommendations

    • The Select Board unanimously voted to recommend all 9 articles of the Special Town Meeting Warrant.
      The full presentation and discussion can be viewed on Shrewsbury Media Connection’s YouTube channel and the Special Town Meeting Webpage!
