The non-profit Center on the Common, which has attempted for the past two years to create a viable cultural center in Harvard’s old library, announced today that it was shutting down.
The Press office will be closed from Dec. 20 through Jan. 4; the first issue of 2015 will be Friday, Jan. 9. We wish all our readers happy, healthy holidays!
From the Boards
The Center on the Common has been operating without insurance since last April, when its policy lapsed, Town Administrator Tim Bragan reported to the Board of Selectmen Tuesday night.
Concerned that their fears had not been heard at a Nov. 12 public forum on a proposal to consider an affordable housing project on Littleton Road, more than 20 residents who live near the property attended the Planning Board meeting Monday night.
Harvard needs to strike a balance in determining the amount of money it puts into a trust fund each year to cover future health benefits for town employees, says Bruce Nickerson, a member of the town’s Finance Committee.
The latest cost estimates to renovate Town Hall are in, and while they show an increase of about 15 percent, the selectmen did not seem too concerned as they discussed their options at their Tuesday, Dec. 16, meeting.
School officials unveiled their spending plans for the coming year this week, asking taxpayers for $12.3 million, a growth of roughly 2.43 percent over last year’s budget.
How many seniors live in Harvard? The answer depends on whom you’re counting and when.
When the property tax bills go out later this month, Harvard’s annual property tax rate for fiscal 2015 will be $17.79 per $1,000 valuation for both residential and commercial property. That’s up from $17.09 a year ago.
A new building in Westborough housing the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife Field Headquarters will be rededicated to former Harvard town moderator Richard Cronin.
