Week In Review: January 23 - January 29
In case you missed it, here's a rundown on just a couple of stories that ran on Foxborough Patch last week.
The week kicked off at the school committee meeting. At the meeting, Superintendent Christopher Martes, announced that Staff Development Day was canceled due to the constant stream of snowstorms. A new program of studies for the High School was also announced at the committee meeting. The school is looking to make changes in its course offerings to help better prepare students for college.
The town selectman meeting mainly focused on Michael Intoccia, who according to town records, owed $23,159.11 in taxes that “had been delinquent for over a year.” Intoccia's lawyer, Robert Shelmerdine, was present at the meeting and confirmed that payment for interest fees, penalties, and taxes were paid in full prior to the start of the meeting.
Last week's big topic was "snow and more snow." More news of snow came on Wednesday, where another storm began to threaten the area. Foxborough ended up with over 10 inches of snow when the storm ended early Thursday morning. Foxborough public schools had yet another snow day. Fortunately, the Foxborough Fire Department did not report any serious accidents.
