Updated Nov. 17, 2009, at 2:21 p.m.: The meeting with state police has been postponed to Dec. 2 because of an unexpected scheduling conflict.

RICHMOND, Mass. — In response to a recent string of break-ins within town, the Board of Selectmen has scheduled a meeting with representatives from the state police on Wednesday, Nov. 18, beginning at 6:30. 

The meeting is open to the public, which is encouraged to attend.

"The Selectmen are concerned over these recent break-ins and want to gather as much information from the state police as they can about their investigation into these crimes," said Town Administrator Matthew Kerwood.

The state police provide the town with police coverage and has recently published a request for the public's assistance in trying to gather information on these crimes. A rash of break-ins northward, in Clarksburg and Stamford, Vt., have residents there putting together a crime watch.

"The Selectmen would encourage anyone with information to either come to meeting or to contact the state police's Lee barracks," said Kerwood. "They very much want to see those responsible for these crimes caught."

The Parks Commission voted Tuesday to move the Greenagers initiative to CPA project eligibility review.
 
"They want to continue the work that they have done already," Recreation Activities Coordinator Becky Manship said.
 
Manship had said at a prior meeting that there had not been enough information so it could not be grouped in with other possible projects at that time.
