About 50 people took the opportunity Monday night to hear from nine candidates for public office in Harvard’s upcoming Town Election.

ATM Article 22: Restoring the town’s fire ponds

As a town that lacks an extensive municipal water system, Harvard relies on a static water supply to provide essential life- and property-saving water sources in the event of a fire emergency. But over the years nearly all of the town’s 22 fire ponds have fallen into disrepair.

During its March 13 meeting, Harvard’s Municipal Affordable Housing Trust voted unanimously to approve revisions to its policies and procedures. The changes are focused on the composition of the trust and the scope of trust activities.

At the Charter Commission’s meeting March 16, the members heard public criticism of their proposal that the selectmen appoint most town boards and their advocacy of a city-like election cycle in which all members of elected boards would stand for re-election every two years.

At their most recent meeting last Thursday, March 16, the nine members of Harvard’s Charter Commission voted unanimously to preserve the Trustees of Warner Free Lectures as an elected board.

ATM Articles 26, 27, 28, 29: Schools ask for money to upgrade labs, lavs, locks, and ramp

The School Committee is seeking voter approval for four warrant articles at Annual Town Meeting for improvements at the Bromfield School.
