Ty’s City Council News: May 17, 2022

The City Council was hybrid this evening: 5 councilors in council chambers, 5 councilors on Zoom. No public hearings were held, including a parking ordinance for the twins Mullaney parking lot next to the senior center. That public hearing was rescheduled for June 21st. There will now be seven public hearings on June 7th. (I will list them next week).

  1. License Committee: Ty Waterman, Chair.

A presentation was given by Rob Geddes, Vice President of the School Committee.

A long list of items from the old high school are being listed for sale including keyboards, electronic accessories, monitor, and printer stands, furniture and a table. In addition, a school fund raising auction is planned prior to the demolition of the old high school. All proceeds from the auction will go into the general fund. The list of items is extensive.

I suggest watching this meeting on-line to understand the large scope of items to be auctioned off.  These include music trophies, athletic banners, and trophies. Some special banners and trophies will be retained to go into the new school/gym.
