No clear path for buried sidewalks in Hollis
It won’t happen this winter, the Board of Selectmen agreed during Monday night’s meeting, but should a motion pass on the Town Meeting floor next month, there’s still hope for next year.
“When you include all these roads, the number isn’t so small anymore,” Selectman Frank Cadwell said.Public Works Director Tom Bayrd said the total cost to plow all of those sidewalks would be just under $23,000.Hollis has $9,000 budgeted for the purpose of plowing sidewalks on major roads, such as Broad Street, where pedestrian traffic is usually high.
Selectman Vahrig Manoukian wondered whether that practice was fair.
“Isn’t it the town’s obligation to keep the sidewalks clean for them?” he asked fellow selectmen.
Board members agreed they would likely pursue that option.
Voting on all town and school officer positions will take place on Tuesday, March 11 at the Lawrence Barn Community Center from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
