Foxborough Town Manager Kevin Paicos says approval of the proposed regional sewer district involving Foxborough, Mansfield and Norton would effectively end an ongoing dispute with the Kraft Group over funds for a sewer treatment plant never built.
As selectmen prepared to hear the finance plan for the proposed regional sewer agreement with Mansfield and Norton Tuesday, Foxborough Town Manager Kevin Paicos shared some “happy” news with the board. “There’s a very happy circumstance [that would result from Foxborough voters authorizing the intermunicipal agreement (IMA) to form a regional sewer district with Norton and Mansfield],” Paicos said. That “happy circumstance,” according to Paicos, is the regional sewer district, which would likely allow Foxborough to finally move on from an ongoing dispute with the Kraft Group involving money believed to be owed for a wastewater treatment plant never built. “This [IMA] removes an obstacle that has created great tension between us and let’s …

Foxborough Fire Chief Roger Hatfield, Health Director Pauline Clifford and volunteers have established an Emergency Preparedness Handbook to help residents be prepared for emergency events.
Foxborough will be better prepared for the town’s next emergency thanks to a new handbook created by town officials. Taking lessons learned from last year’s power outages, the town created an Emergency Preparedness Handbook for residents. “The town has taken some great steps, learned from the lessons [of last year’s storms],” said Foxborough Board of Selectmen chair James DeVellis. Two storms last year caused significant power outages in Foxborough for extended periods of time and DeVellis admitted the town wasn’t prepared to handle those situations. “Selectmen had 10 meetings [during last year’s storms] and the simple questions were being asked,” DeVellis said. “Where’s the shelter? How are we going to communicate with the public [without…

The "No to Foxboro Casino Group held an open house Monday.
For the "No to Foxboro Casino" group, the game plan is still to get the message out to as many people as they can and get them to convince casino developer Steve Wynn to forgo his Route 1 project. That's why the group held an open house and forum Monday during daytime hours at the South Foxboro Fellowship Hall in Foxborough. Organizer Stephanie Crimmins said the daytime forum was to allow people, who wouldn't be able to attend the night meetings, a chance to hear what the group has to say. The open house attracted senior citizens, and a table was set for the children, who attended with their parents. “The turnout was great,” said Crimmins. “We had a lot of new people who were undecided. “They are coming in to talk with us and obtain …
