Cohasset: Appointment of New Police Chief, Bill Quigley on Selectmen’s Agenda Tonight

By David Skill

Acting Cohasset Police Chief Bill Quigley (

The appointment of a new police chief is on the agenda for tonight’s Cohasset Selectmen’s meeting (Tuesday, August 25).

“[The] town manager is going to name acting chief Bill Quigley for the role,” said Board of Selectman Chairman Steve Gaumer.

Gaumer said the town has not had a permanent police chief since May, 2012 when Quigley took the job on an interim basis.

“The appointment tonight will remove the acting label and recognize the fitness of the interim police chief, Bill Quigley,” said Gaumer.

We asked Gaumer why it took so long.

“There was a fair amount of discord between the then composition of the board of selectmen and the acting town manager with respect to that town manager’s authority to appoint a permanent chief,” said Gaumer.

Now, it’s up to the selectmen to make it official.

“Tonight, our meeting is the official appointment. And then the board will vote on that to accept or reject, and then if becomes official,” said Gaumer.

Also tonight, the board will get an update on dredging from …read more

Kingston: Mitigation Plan, Town-Owned Surplus Vehicles on Selectmen’s Agenda Tonight

By David Skill

Kingston selectmen expect to act on a resolution to adopt the “Old Colony Region Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan” and the town’s own Hazard Mitigation Plan at tonight’s meeting (Tuesday, August 25).

Selectman chair Elaine Fiore explained what benefit this will be to the town.

“Whenever there are storms and natural disasters, there are hazards, and it’s a plan that outlines different structures in town, dams and bridges and buildings and what the risk factor would be during the storm if it’s low or moderate. So it gives us some valuable information to focus on in an emergency situation,” said Fiore.

Also tonight, an update on auctioning off town-owned surplus vehicles and equipment.

“We have some old police cars, some trucks, a couple of boats from the harbormaster that have long past their days of effectiveness,” said Fiore.

Selectmen meet tonight at 5:00 PM at the Kingston Town House.

Duxbury: Harbor Finally Being Dredged

By David Cedrone

The dredging of Duxbury Harbor is finally going to get underway.

Within the next two weeks the $4.5 million dredging project of Duxbury Harbor will start.

The dredging has not been done since 1997 and Duxbury Town Manager Rene Read says the harbor desperately needs the work.

“There is a tremendous amount of siltation that has occurred in both the channel and the mooring basin. The mooring basin is probably one third to almost halfway silted in. The channel itself should be running at 8-feet deep and currently runs in spots three and four feet deep,” said Read.

Read says the dredging will be complete by the end of December.

Weymouth: MWRA Gives Blessing for SouthField Water Supply

By John Penny

SouthField Discovery District Plan

SouthField developer Lstar presented the Weymouth Town Council with ambitious new plans Monday night for the former South Weymouth Naval Air Station – as well a long awaited plan to get water to the site.

Preliminary plans for SouthField include a town center district with a hockey rink, hotel and conference center, mixed use residential and commercial and a 10,000 seat sports stadium.

There’s also a discovery district for bio-tech firms and a neighborhood district.

The plan will require huge amounts of water, which hasn’t been available.

But now the Mass Water Resource Authority has issued a letter of endorsement to provide the water supply, which is a huge step forward.

SouthField could then sell excess water capacity to surrounding towns, to help pay off the developer’s investment in building a 7 mile long water pipeline from Braintree to Weymouth.

Lstar President Kyle Corkum addressed the issue and said, “The MWRA will wholesale the water to us and we get to resell it to other communities, and there are a lot of communities in …read more
