Federal officials give $45k to town for snowstorm

Selectmen have accepted a reimbursement of roughly $45,000 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for snow removal and protective actions during the nor’easter last February that caused Governor Deval Patrick to ban vehicles from public roads. They are also looking at upgrading Whetstone Street to accommodate a proposed residential development on the former Sullivan Farm property. In other news, selectmen are seeking members for the town’s personnel committee.
