Whitman: Town Meeting Approves Funding Design of New Sewer Line

Officials in Whitman held their breath last night as they started their special town meeting hoping they would get enough residents to meet quorum.

The quorum for their special town meeting is just 150 people and they made it just before 8 pm as the last 5 tax payers rolled in during the start of the storm.

Whitman had just 4 articles on the warrant, passing the most important one, which appropriated $900,000 for the design of a replacement sewer line.

Here is Whitman Town Administrator Frank Lyman.


Lyman hopes the sewer line which was first installed back in 1984 will be finished within 2 years.

The 4.5 mile sewer line will run to Brockton’s water treatment plant.
