BOS shorts, March 24

Boston Post cane awarded. Edwin Sadler officially received the polished black ebony cane presented to the town’s eldest citizen. Sadler, who will be 102 in May, was accompanied by four generations of his family for the event. The cane itself celebrates its own 100 year birthday this year in August.

Invasive plant display. The Selectmen unanimously approved a plan presented by John Bakewell for a temporary installation of invasive plants in a 500-foot bed opposite the playing field at Banta-Davis. The educational display will include examples of invasive plants transplanted from other spots in town to assist townspeople in identifying invasive species.

Bike course approved. The Selectmen unanimously decided to permit the National Brain Tumor Society Ride for Research to pass through Carlisle on its Sunday, May 31, ride pending approval of an acceptable route with the Chief of Police.

Boy Scouts flag training permitted. The Selectmen approved a request from Scoutmaster Craig Smith to permit Boy Scouts in Carlisle to use the Town Hall flag for training. The Scouts noticed the flag has deteriorated, and will replace and present a new flag to the town at the next Selectmen’s meeting.

BAN renewed. Carlisle Treasurer Larry Barton requested the renewal of a $1 million bond anticipation note (BAN) to pay for a school boiler, cisterns, and a new fire truck. The Selectmen unanimously approved renewal for one year.

Animal inspectors appointed. The Selectmen approved Larry Sorli of Westford Street and Deb Toher of Curve Street as inspectors for animals through April 30, 2010. ∆
