The Board of Selectmen at its meeting Thursday will continue its discussion of proposed regulations to implement the town’s fingerprinting bylaw. Adopted by Town Meeting in November 2011, the bylaw requires anyone seeking to operate in town as a hawker, peddler, door-to-door salesperson, ice cream truck driver, taxi livery driver, or manager of a restaurant or store selling alcohol to submit to fingerprinting within seven days of filing their license application, said Town Manager Michael Yunits. The fingerprints will enable the town to undertake a more extensive criminal background check of the applicants than would otherwise be the case, Yunits said. Selectmen will be joined in the discussion by Police Chief Brian Clark. Yunits said he anticipates the board will be ready to vote on the regulations that night.
