Happy Monday!

This week’s version of The What is a little abbreviated, as we’re working on a few other projects over here. We look forward to having a regular version again next week—on Tuesday due to the Labor Day holiday.

Here’s some of our previous coverage our new subscribers (hi!) might not have seen just yet.

And here’s a look at what’s happening around the region this week.




There will be a special joint meeting of the Board of Selectmen, Representative Town Meeting, and Board of Finance on Wednesday, August 31 at 5:30 p.m. to hear a presentation from town officials and its environmental attorney on the status of the remediation efforts and receive an update on Penfield Pavilion.



  • Tuesday, August 30: RTM–Public Works at 7:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, Sept. 1: Police Commission at 4 p.m.


Please note: All of these agendas and information here are current as of Sunday night. Meeting times and agendas may get adjusted throughout the week.

Thank you for reading!
