Public Meeting Notice

Mohawk School Committee & BEST Subcommittee
Monday, Dec. 12th, 7 pm
Mohawk High School Auditorium

Mohawk’s BEST Committee after meeting for almost a year voted on November 1, 2016  to recommend to the Mohawk School Committee a plan of action designed to improve the long-term sustainability of the Mohawk Trail Regional School District. It is important to note that no part of this plan can be implemented without the consent of all District towns at public Town Meetings.  Neither BEST nor the Mohawk School Committee has the authority to implement the plan, or any part of the plan, on its own.

An outline of the BEST recommendations was distributed to the Mohawk School Committee for initial review at its meeting on November 9, and BEST’s final report and supporting materials will be presented at the School Committee’s meeting on December 14.  The School Committee will be asked to approve (or amend) the recommendations at its meeting on January 18.

In order to provide everyone – parents, staff, students, town officials and residents – with as much information as possible, BEST will be holding a series of public meetings to discuss the recommendations.  The first of these meetings will be held on Monday, December 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Mohawk Auditorium.  Other meetings will be held in District towns during December and early January

The BEST Committee’s recommendations envision a phased plan that will be implemented in stages over the next several years to allow time for the success of each phase to be assessed and the impact and feasibility of the next phase to be reconsidered. The approval of every town will be necessary at every phase.

For more detailed information on these recommendations see the Best page on the Mohawk.org site at http://mtrsd-best.weebly.com/   Please plan to attend and have your voice heard on the future of the Mohawk District.  Read more...

BULKY WASTE

Bulky Items - Companies Offering Pickup & Disposal
If you have bulky items (mattresses, upholstered furniture, wood furniture, toilets, sinks, and carpet) that you are unable to transport to the Greenfield Transfer Station, or to the Franklin County Solid Waste Management District's May and October "Clean Sweep" events, there are local companies that you can hire to pick up and properly dispose of the items.


You will be contracting directly with the private hauler and will be responsible for paying any pickup and disposal fees that are charged.  This is NOT a service provided by the Town of Buckland. You are making a private arrangement with a private company to perform a service, and the Town does not control the fees that are charged.

This list is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all companies that may provide this service, and does not constitute any endorsement or recommendation by the Town of Buckland.  Companies are listed alphabetically.
