Video: Water-Sewer Manager Eric Carty and Owner of Weston Nurseries Peter Mezitt talk Rain Barrels

The water & sewer department is working with local businesses to help encourage water conservation. Water & Sewer manager Eric Carty and owner of Weston nurseries Peter Mezitt talked about how the purchase of a rain barrel can help reduce water consumption. Hopkinton residents are also being offered a discount on rain barrels.

Water & Sewer Manager mentioned that Weston Nurseries, Angels Garden Center and Evergreen Garden Center are working with the town to raise awareness for water conservation; "we're unfortunately mandated by the state, to put on water restrictions every year". Carty mentioned that the garden centers are working with the town to show how patrons can water their gardens properly while being cautions of water use.

In the video below, owner of Weston Nurseries Peter Mezitt and Water & Sewer Manager Eric Carty show how to properly use a Rain Barrel.

Editorial: School Committee Candidate Brian Karp statement about Religious Observence

contribute's picture

Dear Hopkinton Residents,

The School Committee’s failure to fully embrace the needs of families and the committee’s inadequate method of obtaining public input at its meetings are very troubling to me.

With regard to the needs of families, on May 6, 2015 the School Department announced that on Thursday, May 14th the School Committee will be reviewing the Religious Holiday Observance and Religious Expression Policy. I do not believe that it is merely a coincidence that the committee is planning to review this policy 4 days before the town election.
