In a unanimous vote at the end of its monthly meeting, three members of the five-person board decided to trim the number of tobacco licenses from seven to six, reflecting the fact that only six of the available licenses currently are in use.
The board signed a letter to the state Bureau of Infections, Disease & Laboratory Sciences. This letter informs the state that the Lanesborough Board of Health voted in favor of having the qualified and appropriate organizations operate a mobile syringe service.
The panel voted to issue a conditional tobacco sales permit to Peaslee's Package and Variety in effect on May 1 with two additional conditions: that the application is submitted by Friday and that there are no future violations.
Board members feel that options for local recycling are limited, as the most popular hauler does not offer the service. Lanesborough does have a recycling center on Maple Court that operates from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
