E. L. Harvey and Sons To Expand

Groundbreaking on $20 million facility on June 26

Selectmen discuss solid waste contract award


June 17, 2008 — The long awaited groundbreaking for what has been described as a $20 million facility at EL Harvey and Sons has been slated for June 26 at 9:00 am at the Hopkinton Recycling Center. The project will consist of two buildings, one a 20,000 square foot C & D [Construction and Demolition Debris] building, and the other, a MRRF [Materials Recovery and Recycling Facility] that will cover 80,000 square feet. (Photo of capped landfill, rear of photo).


      According to principal Jim Harvey [file photo], the C & D building is a scaled down version of the original one, because the existing business in Westborough had to be put indoors because of  new laws. Although the C&D building will be 20,000 square feet, he is unsure of what materials will be featured, saying that more and more materials become designated as recyclables by the government.

      He also placed some of the blame for the delays — the project originally went before the Board of Appeals in 2004 — on the Cedar Swamp Conservation Trust, a Westborough group led by John Craycroft, who Mr. Harvey said pulled out of the appeal process in December 2007, paving the way for the groundbreaking.

      The Harveys themselves had appealed the Decision issued by the Hopkinton Board of Appeals dated September 22, 2004 and filed with the Hopkinton Town Clerk on September 23, 2004. Eventually, on Wednesday, June 15, 2005 the Board of Appeals held a public hearing, and the project was soon passed.

      In December, 2006, Janet and Jim Harvey appeared before the Selectmen at the urging of then Selectmen Ron Clark.   

       "The state told us we had to stop work outside," Mr. Harvey said at that meeting, speaking of the existing business in Westborough that had to be put indoors.

       Mr. Harvey said today during a telephone interview that the facility will return $3 per ton of recyclables to the town of Hopkinton. During the lengthy hearings for the facility, proponents estimated a $600,000 per year revenue from the host community fees, or as some call it, tipping fees, once the business is running full tilt. In addition, Mr. Harvey said that the company is beginning to move trucks to Hopkinton, which some have said will bring in $1,000 each in excise tax.

Selectmen Meeting

      The Selectmen hosted members of the Harvey family to discuss in front of the town that EL Harvey & Sons has won the recycling and trash hauling contract that was awarded. The process for bids was a request for proposals. But trash contracts, according to Town Manager Anthony Troiano, are exempt from the 30b competitive bidding process.

       "We've a little bit of advantage on our side: We could follow the rules of Chapter 30b  or we could not follow them when we felt it was to our advantage; and we did just that," said Mr. Troiano. He said the $653,000 contract was won by the Harvey company, even though the previous company, Allied Waste, offered a very good service.

        Mr. Troiano said the town stands to save $43,000 from the curbside program, among other benefits.

        Mr. Harvey said the company will be working with Superintendent of Schools, John Phelan, to develop a program to teach teachers to teach the children about recycling.

Selectmen Meet in Comfort

June 16, 2008 — The Selectmen met this evening in a comfortable room in the Senior Center to discuss how they will proceed at future meetings, and how to present the best face to the public.

        Although the meeting was a posted one, and anyone could have attended according to law, the Town Manager had asked the press to allow them this meeting to themselves.

        Selectman Chair Brian Herr said, after the meeting, "We talked about the process. We agreed to have one conversation at a time. We will look to everyone before moving on [to the next topic], including the public."

        "From 6:30-7:00 we will have an administrative session," said Selectman Michael Shepard. "Then people can talk without talking to the camera," he said.

         "We also talked about how we are going to proceed with the Planning Board Vote," said Mr. Herr. The Selectmen and Planning Board will meet on Tuesday to choose one of five applicants for Selectman RJ Dourney's vacated seat on the Planning Board. Story below.

Homeless Pigeon

June 16, 2008 — Kristine Hunt gave HopNews the tip on the pigeon that found a home in her yard all day today, even with the family dogs running around. They didn't know of the bird could fly until Kristine's brother put on some leather gloves and attempted to move it for a better photo, and it flew to safety on the roof of their home.

      According to Kristine, the pigeon has a band that starts with "AU" which is a racing pigeon designation, according to

Hopkinton: A Tree City USA

June 16, 2008 — Hopkinton was named a Tree City USA municipality on May 1 of this year today in a ceremony at MassHort at Elm Bank in Wellesley. Tree Warden Paul Gleason was honored with two signs for the town, one of which is displayed above, entering Hopkinton from the Ashland town line.

      A municipality qualifies as a Tree City USA if it meets four criteria: Must have a department devoted to tree care, spend at least $2 per annum on urban forestry, enforce laws protecting trees and host an Arbor Day celebration.

      "A Tree City USA designation gives  a municipality an advantage over other towns since you demonstrate a level of interest above and beyond other towns," said Mr. Gleason. "It shows you care about trees in the community," he said at that time.

Five Residents Apply for Empty Planning Board Seat

Former Selectman, four others, put names in hat


June 16, 2008 — Five residents have submitted letters of interest to Town Manager Anthony Troiano for appointment to the open seat on the Planning Board created by the resignation of RJ Dourney, who was elected to the Board of Selectmen in May.  They are currently scheduled to appear at 8:00 p.m. before a joint meeting of the Board of Selectmen and the Planning Board on Tuesday evening during the scheduled Selectmen's Meeting.

      Two members of the Planning Board have called for the resignation of fellow member Evan Ballantyne, photo, left, who has missed nearly 80% of the meetings in the last year, according to records on file at the Planning Department. His resignation would open up a second seat on the Board to be appointed by a majority of the Selectmen and the Planning Board.

      Former Selectman Chair Muriel Kramer, photo, left, cites her experience on the Board of Selectmen, the Board of Appeals Master Plan Update Committee, and the Land Use Study Committee.

      "I have specific and first hand experience with the entire process that has brought Hopkinton and Boulder Capital to his point in the process for Legacy Farms..." she writes. Mrs. Kramer then lists a dozen other forums or groups she has participated in.

      Four-year Hopkinton resident and father of two, David Auslander, photo, right, who served on the Zoning Advisory Committee cited the positive feedback he has gotten from people on the planning Board and the Board of Selectmen. He also has coached baseball, soccer and basketball "in town."

     Donielle Moss, who has lived in Hopkinton "almost one year," is a special education teacher with a Masters degree in secondary education. She has gone to meetings and joined the Lake Maspenock Association.

     Attorney G. Michael Peirce has had years of experience with land use law and has been an Associate City Solicitor with the City of Newton.

     "I have been engaged in this work for over thirty years and between my own practice and attendance at countless meetings over those years, have been exposed to hundreds of proposals, minor and major in scale," writes Mr. Peirce, who has been a Hopkinton resident for 11 years.

      "I believe I can be of value as the town faces the various constraints that all municipalities are facing, and can work with the board members to seek the appropriate balance between the desire for quality development in town and the need to ensure that development be sensitive to adjacent neighborhoods and the character of the general community," he writes.

      John Mosher, who is on the Design Review Board, would also like a shot at serving on the Planning Board. Mr. Mosher, a West Elm Street resident, is a Director of Marketing who has vast experience in product design for footwear.

      The appointment will be until the next election, at which time the seat will be open for the remainder of Mr. Dourney's term.

They're Everywhere

June 15, 2008 — The chipmunk population has become very large lately, despite the increase in the coyote population in the area.

     In towns that have a lot of apartments, people who cannot take their cats to the next location often discard their cats in the woods, fields, farms and parks, hoping they'll survive. The cats often do survive, making rodents such as chipmunks their prey, diminishing that population.

      However, the cats are prey for the coyotes, which diminishes the cat population, and increases the chipmunk population. And so on...

Needle in a...

June 14, 2008 — Hopkinton Pack 26 broke up into three groups to find "treasures" in Hopkinton State Park that were hidden, and the locations of which were recorded using the GPS system. Each group of Scouts took turns in finding the packages using hints given by the leaders, and GPS; and then leaving the treasure for the next group to find. This variation of the hobby is called geocaching, due to the use of GPS,

          Serious adults call the intriguing hobby Letterboxing. When they find the box using only hints — no GPS — they may take a treasure, only if they leave one. Each participant in the adult sport usually has a unique stamp, which they make an impression of at the scene.

Hopkinton, resident Paul Johnson will be participating in the upcoming fundraising event, AGAINST THE TIDE, hosted by the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition.

Against The Tide raises money for breast cancer education and prevention research through the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) and its sister research organization, Silent Spring Institute.

Paul Johnson says, “I am excited about participating in Against the Tide, because I will be able to combine both my passions for kayaking and fundraising to raise awareness for such a great cause. I believe that the event will be a true inspiration for every woman affected by the disease.”

Against The Tide is a one-mile swim, two-mile kayak and three-mile fitness walk to benefit the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC). People can choose to participate in 1 or all 3 of these events. This fun and inspirational program brings swimmers, kayakers and walkers of all ages and abilities together with MBCC in efforts to stop the breast cancer epidemic.

Participants commit to raising a minimum contribution of $150, which must be donated on the day of the event, in order to participate in the festivities. Participants may enroll in as many components of the events as they would like. All participants will be welcomed on the day of the event with a free continental breakfast and an Against The Tide t shirt. All funds raised go directly to breast cancer prevention through the advocacy work of MBCC and research initiatives of its sister environmental organization, Silent Spring Institute. Registration materials, sponsor information, and fundraising ideas can be found at .

School Committee Explains Bus Fees

Kids on lunch assistance qualify for free bus

Above, Science Fair winners recognized for their achievements by the School Committee this evening. From left, Lauren Blake, Tom Coburn, Pat Jarvis, teacher, Valerie Lechtanski, Courtney Onofrio, Deanna Payson.


June 12, 2008 — This evening the School Committee explained that the increase in elementary bus fees was two-fold. First, the budget that they requested for level services did not go through, and the contract for bus services was higher than expected, said Finance Director Geoff MacDonald. He said the implementation of the new fees generated "a flurry of reactions."

      Chair of the School Committee, Rebecca Robak said, "By law, we only ave to provide transportation for students K-6 who live beyond 2 miles from their school." Rather than cut the service entirely, Mrs. Robak said, they decided to implement a fee.

     However, the Committee assured parents who cannot afford the $210 per student, $420 per family cap bus fee, that there are ways to get assistance.

      Those who are on the lunch assistance program automatically qualify to have the fee waived, said Mr. MacDonald.

      Mr. MacDonald said that at least 50% of the bus fee is due by June 20, 2008, and the balance may be paid at the beginning of the school year.

      Others with a hardship, such as the loss of a job, said Superintendent Dr. John Phelan, could submit proof of the circumstance by letter and have the fee mitigated.

      In any case, all students must apply, whether or not they have to pay.
