Report and Recommendations - The Crematory Study Committee reviewed its report and presentation with the Board of Selectmen on Monday, June 7, 2010. The Crematory Study Committee reported its recommendation (7 in favor, 2 opposed) that the Board of Selectmen move ahead with a limited feasibility study through a Request for Proposals (RFP) let by the Crematory Study Committee, the scope of which would include environmental, health, and financial information. The feasibility study would be followed by a non-binding referendum question.
