With a rare five Tuesdays in the month of January, the Town Council did not meet Tuesday night in their usual every-other-week schedule, but they’ll resume their schedule on February 7.
Town Council President Peter Gill and his colleagues have a busy year ahead. There are so many huge projects and ideas going on in Winthrop that the councillors will have much to do, the chief among them being whether to build a new combined middle/high school. There also are the major issues of the drainage project at Ingleside Park, street improvement projects, the decision whether to hire a firm to televise all board and committee meetings, the polling locations issue, and the continuing implementation of the consolidation plan.
So, it’s back to the regular schedule for our councilors. We know our town is in good hands with Manager James McKenna, Council President Gill, and Finance Director Michael Bertino leading the way.
