Are you interested in how the Town operates and if it is spending it money wisely?  If so, here is your opportunity to better understand our Maynard community.  The Moderator is looking to fill an open position on the town’s Finance Committee.

No special education or experience is necessary other than being a resident of Maynard.  If you can handle a budget at home where you balance income with expenditures, then you can be effective on the finance committee.

The committee meets once or twice a month year round and an additional meeting per month in the spring before town meeting.  Here is your opportunity to have input on which priorities the town wishes to spend it money on by recommendations to the Town Meeting voters.

If you are interested, please contact Dick Downey, the town moderator, at ddowney@townofmaynard.net or Town Moderator, Municipal Building, 195 Main St, Maynard, MA 01754.

ADA Transition Plan Seeking Public Comments

In 2017, the Town received a grant from the Massachusetts Office of Disabilities to update its ADA Transition Plan. The rewrite has been drafted and it includes new provisions for enable citizens to ask for accommodations, appoints an employee as a point of contact, and outlines new physical and electronic access improvements to be implemented in the coming years.

Before submitting the plan to the Commonwealth for acceptance, public input is required.  In addition, a committee must be re-established which will inform capital planning, make budget recommendations, and assist citizens and the town in determining and establishing proper accommodations in the future. The current committee is dormant.

The draft plan is available for download on the ADA Committee page or by request at the Town Administrator’s Office.  Anyone interested in serving on the ADA Committee should also contact the Town Administrator’s Office for details.

Mandatory Outdoor Water Use Ban In Effect

Public Works Director Aaron Miklosko announces that the Town of Maynard will have a mandatory outdoor water use restriction beginning Monday June 11th, 2018, and will remain in effect until further notice.

The water restriction is the result of an effort to preserve the town’s water supply following a recent mechanical failure in one of its water production wells.

Under this Water Conservation Restriction, all nonessential outdoor use of water is prohibited at all times. The conservation order will be strictly enforced by local officials.

The elevated conservation restriction will help ensure the town can provide an adequate supply of water for drinking and fire protection.
