Email from Kris yesterday afternoon (a copy of the email appears below) on the status of completing the water tower land deal with the state.
It looks like:
- the terms of the Land Disposition Agreement (LDA) between the town and the state have been agreed upon
- the LDA can therefore can be signed next Tuesday at the meeting of the Board of Selectmen, and
- that the town will actually own the land by mid-September.
The town needs to acquire title to the land as soon as possible so that the work on the new water tower and water main along Hospital Road can be completed without interruption (and concomitant greater cost). I was told that the state will not allow that work to proceed on state property until we own the land, so we just cannot do some of the work until after the land has been deeded to the Town of Medfield.
I heard earlier this afternoon that DCAMM and the Town’s Attorney have reached an agreement on the Water Tower LDA. We are in the process of finalizing the copy for the BOS to sign on Tuesday. We have set up a tentative date to close on 9/18.
