5 Things: Sewer Misconceptions, New Restaurant Manager

We've put together 5 tidbits from the selectmen's meeting this week.

1. Selectmen on Tuesday accepted a presentation by the that gave an overview of out-of-town sewer users that tap into Framingham’s system. The report indicated that there are 17,766 sewer accounts in Framingham and 131 accounts are from other towns. Ashland is the heaviest user of Framingham’s system with 62 accounts, followed by Southborough’s 34 and Natick’s 31. DPW chief Peter Sellers was quick to point out that there have not been any new approvals of out-of-town hookups since 2002. Any hookups that have occurred were approved prior to 2002. Selectman Dennis Giombetti thanked Sellers for clearing up a “misconception” that there have been numerous hookup approvals in the past decade.

2. Selectmen opened and closed a warrant for a special Town Meeting on Sept. 10, in response to a citizen petition filed by Framingham resident Steve Hakar. Additionally, selectmen opened a warrant for the Oct. 16 Fall Special Town Meeting. 

3. An NStar petition for a gas main on Edmands Road was approved. The petition is for ongoing work near Garvey Road and Carter Drive. An NStar representative said the project would be completed in two to three weeks.

Can I ask an odd question? Why did the board need to approve staff at private businesses? "4. The board approved a new director, Edward Seeker, and a new manager, David Rothemich, for Trader Joe’s. 5. Armando Oliva was approved as a new director and new manager at Acapulco’s." Can you clarify what this means exactly? Did they join the board of selectmen? Or is there some sort of agreement between the town and Trader Joes?

Hi, Joy and Caroline - I wasn't at this meeting, but what I think this was, was a confirmation of a private business' appointment of a new manager. It's a licensing issue. When a food/restaurant changes a manager, I believe it's a stipulation of the license that the town must be notified of new management.
