Byk was honored for his 10 years on the board at the open session of Town Meeting Wednesday night.
Conservation Commission co-chair Francie Von Mertens said, “Joe gets it and the Select Board as a whole gets it,” when it comes to protecting natural resources and businesses and economic interests. “There is no separation.”
Jim Grant said Byk also helped revitalize the town’s Memorial Day observance by ensuring the Peterborough Patriotic Committee was initially funded by the town.
Byk thanked Selectwoman Liz Thomas for voting to appoint him to fill a one-year term that was vacant, which led to him serving three consecutive three-year terms on the board.
Thomas said the board would miss Byk and announced plans for a “pocket park” and bench on Union Street as part of the infrastructure improvements of West Peterborough this summer.
