Marshfield: Voters to be asked to approve $5.1 million for seawalls

Share Button

Marshfield residents will be asked to approve a $5.1 million proposal to borrow the money for the town’s aging and crumbling seawalls at tonight’s Town Meeting. The money would be used for an 1100-foot section of sea wall in Fieldston, to repair the revetment in front of the sea wall in Hewitt’s Point, and also to come up with a plan to replace 2,600 feet of sea wall in Ocean Bluff. Because the article, which was submitted by Tom Reynolds, the town’s DPW Superintendent, involves taking out a loan, it requires a two-thirds majority. The capital budget committee has come out in favor of the seawall article.

Also on the warrant in Marshfield is an article for a one-year moratorium on medical marijuana facilities, a $79.4 million operating budget and a number of Community Preservation Act articles.

Town meeting is at 7:00 p.m. at the Furnace Brook Middle School.



About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
