CHARLESTOWN - The Charlestown Transfer Station will have new hours of operation starting this week.
According to Town Administrator Bill DiLibero, the station will be open on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., with the exception of Monday, Jan. 16, in respects to the observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The town of Charlestown will also be giving the public a chance to speak their minds at an open forum with the town council on Monday night, Jan. 23. at 7 p.m., at the town hall.
DiLibero said that forum will give residents an opportunity to â€śclear the air,â€ť and let the council know if something is bugging them in town, or if there is something they would like to commend town employees for.
â€śIt gives the public the opportunity to bring any issues they have to the town council,â€ť he said.
In order to speak at the open forum, a citizen must register with the town clerk beforehand and disclose their intended topic of discussion. It will be a great chance to make suggestions for improvements to the council. Each person will be given five minutes at the podium to speak their mind.
The town council passed a motion to hold the forum unanimously at the council meeting on Jan. 9.
The town council also decided to hold an interesting discussion next month at a meeting. The potential formation of a subcommittee to explore the possible acquisition and development of the Cross Millsâ€™ Fire Station building and property into a town center or town park was on the agenda for Jan. 9, but delayed because Councilwoman Lisa DiBello was not present.
