I was working backwards through my emails, and had not gotten to this one from THE Chief about the lines when I posted.
The current line painting company is going out of business. DPW Director Mo Goulet and I are meeting with a new potential company this morning…..Chief
There have been concerns expressed over the workmanship of the recent Rte. 27 line painting, and today I was asked about it, so I queried Chief Meaney. The Medfield Police Department is responsible for the line painting of streets in town for some historic reason, a responsibility that I have heard may soon get shifted over to the DPW.
The Chief responded that :
Actually just met with the line painting company. The situation is going to be corrected.
From the Medfield Police Department’s Animal Control Officer, Jennifer Shaw Cronin, is the notice below. Please come forward if you are and/or know the owner –
On Thursday, July 21, around 2:30-3:00pm a young woman was jogging at the state hospital and was bitten in the leg by a medium sized, chocolate brown dog, maybe some sort of boxer mix. The owner of the dog was a middle-aged woman, with dark colored hair, and she was picking berries. The young woman did not realize she had a puncture wound until after her run and went back to find a dog but they were gone. Unfortunately since we do not have the rabies vaccination history on this dog, the young woman will have to undergo the series of rabies shots. If you own this dog, please call me at the Medfield police station, 508-359-2315 so I can verify your dog’s vaccination history. Thank you very much.
Westwood is reportedly about to spend $14-15m. to build a new police station, using the same builder Medfield used for our public safety building, according to a Westwood Press newspaper article. Westwood’s projected cost of $14-15m. makes the $19m. Medfield is spending to build our combined fire and police, public safety building look like a great deal. Our public safety building should be opening in the fall.
