Kids welcome at Department of Public Works open house

Posted by ssiek October 30, 2007 03:00 PM


"Fun for the whole family" is not usually a phrase one associates with public works departments. But there's something for at least two key demographics at Weston's Department of Public Works open house this Saturday (Nov. 3). Kids can get an up-close look at all the big trucks and equipment, and town officials are hoping their parents will learn why the department needs a new building. The special town meeting scheduled for Nov. 28 will ask voters for money to pay for additional design fees for the new facility.The town's Permanent Building Committee, town staff, and the design team working on the project will all be available to answer questions between 9 a.m. to noon at the current public works building, 190 Boston Post Road By-Pass.

Town officials have also planned an informational meeting for next Wednesday (Nov. 7) about the proposed new building. It starts at 7:30 p.m. in Town Hall.
