Quick Recap:

  • Motion to approve prior meeting minutes passed via roll call vote 3-0
  • Motion to grant waive on leaching field/Title 5 specifications to create a working system passed by roll call 3-0 vote
  • Manicure establishment regulation to be subject of a future public hearing before removing the regulation as it is duplicative with what the State already does
  • Updates on recruiting for future clinic in process; building at 27 Winter condemned, proceedings appreciated by Franklin Police
  • No questions from committee on Gov Baker’s updates to COVID-19 restrictions, facial covering requirements, etc.

As with most meetings in this pandemic period, I took my notes via Twitter during the meeting reporting in real-time via the virtual session.
