Hopkinton decides not to change Chariho Act

October 23, 2014

HOPKINTON — At their Monday night meeting, Hopkinton Town Councilors voted to leave the Chariho Act as is, for the time being instead of moving forward with two proposed amendments that were discussed during the Sept. 18 meeting of the Chariho Joint Governing Bodies.
The first amendment, penned by Hopkinton, would have changed the start time of the yearly Chariho budget meeting from 7:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The Chariho Act stipulates that the meeting start at 7:30 p.m. but the budget meeting always starts at 7 p.m. Hopkinton’s amendment would bring the meeting into compliance with the law.

The project is a ground-mounted solar array that will produce about 600 kilowatt hours a year, which will be sold to National Grid for 19.5 cents per kilowatt hour.
