Controversial business to shut down


Paul Waznis, owner of Call & Wait Auto Service, has signed a binding agreement to liquidate his business by Sept. 30, 2007, Town Administrator Jack Hathaway announced at a selectmen's meeting this week.

Under the agreement, Waznis cannot bring any new materials onto the Lincoln Road property and must comply with town regulations for disposal of potentially hazardous waste.

Waznis has a license that allows him to operate a used car lot, but selectmen say that he has been operating a junkyard instead. They had threatened to revoke his license if he did not agree to close his business within a year.

“This has been a long struggle, and it’s come to the right conclusion,” Selectmen Chairman Jim Lehan said.
