Biking on Downtown Sidewalks - do the Selectmen care?
[Received the following from Phil the Barber on 14-July. Comments? -- Webmaster]
After years of minor accidents in front of my barbershop downtown, a small child got hit by a bicycle. While not seriously injured, it may be a wakeup call for the selectmen to monitor the law of not riding bikes, skateboards etc. on downtown sidewalks.
I have also been winged by a bike, and just last week, I almost got hit again coming out of my shop. Yes, I do look when I come out, but the bikes are going so fast, it sometimes is hard to react. Signs placed in locations in town just do not work. Closer monitoring by the Police Dept. needs to be enacted.
My point to this note is, there would be a major lawsuit against the town if someone were to get hit seriously enough. Thank goodness it has not happened yet.Add a comment

WESTBOROUGH - Two powerful rainstorms that rolled through the region Tuesday and Wednesday caused some of the worst flooding Westborough has seen in years, town officials said.
The storms, which occurred during the afternoon on both days, pelted the area with heavy rains and hail that had emergency response crews scrambling to come to people’s aid.
Captain Joseph Lawrence of the Westborough Fire Department said that Tuesday’s storm alone prompted 57 calls from around town, from residents dealing with waterlogged basements to motorists stranded on flooded roadways.
“I haven’t seen it this bad in 35 years,” he said. “I’ve never seen flooding like this.”
Though town officials have yet to put together firm numbers, Town Manager Jim Malloy, who surveyed the damage from Tuesday’s storm with Department of Public Works crews, said the cost to the town...
