The town is hoping the state will fund reconstruction of the sidewalks on Summer Street.
On Monday the Board of Selectmen agreed to file an application with the state's Complete Streets program with rebuilding the sidewalks from Route 7 to the school as a top priority. The town can apply for up to $400,000 from the program per year.
The engineers promised to take into consideration all of the feedback as they go through a design process that is still in its early stages; the best-case scenario for putting the Latham-to-Hopper job out to bid is December 2020, MassDOT project manager John Gendall said after the forum.
This is the second Complete Streets project denied to the town. Previously, officials had looked to make improvements to Depot and RailRoad streets but the project did not score high enough in all categories required for the grant.
Adams Ambulance will aid the Cheshire Fire Department and cover the town during week days.
Fire Chief Thomas Francesconi told the Selectmen on Tuesday that Adams Ambulance has agreed to operate an ambulance out of the fire station Monday through Friday.
