A Letter from the North Andover Sustainability Committee

To our fellow citizens:

 

With regard to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the members of the Sustainability Committee recognize the hardships many small business owners, workers and residents will endure in the coming months.

 

We have worked long and hard on our recommendation to implement a single-use plastic bag ban in North Andover. We believe wholeheartedly in this endeavor. With community support and participation, we can and we will take steps to positively impact the future of our planet.

 

Our committee is sensitive to what the future may hold for our North Andover citizens. We respect and honor the well-being of each individual and stability of each business. Furthermore, it is of utmost importance for all of us to have a fair opportunity to vote on this initiative.

 

During this unprecedented time of uncertainty, and after much consideration and thoughtful discussion, we are choosing to postpone the Plastic Bag Ban recommendation until 2021. We hope you will follow our lead in the coming months as we continue to campaign and provide important information and updated research as to how we can positively impact the future of our planet and our community.

 

Wishing you all the best in health and prosperity,

The North Andover Sustainability Committee

A Message from Town Moderator Mark DiSalvo regarding Proposed Municipal Legislation, Bill H.2572

I have seen and heard many questions about postponement of town elections and town meeting.   As a leader in the Massachusetts Moderators Association I have been helping to write this bill for the past week, filed yesterday by the Governor, and presented to the legislature today in informal session. It can be linked here and is attached below.  In lieu of a public hearing, the Joint Committee on Municipalities and Regional Government (Diana DiZoglio is the Senate Vice Chair, Christina Minicucci and Tram Nguyen are both House members of the committee) is soliciting public input on the bill, H.4572.  They request comments be limited to urgent priorities related to the topic in this bill. There will be additional processes or opportunities for more wide-ranging comments about challenges facing municipalities in the coming days.

Please email your comments to House Chair Rep. James O'Day at james.oday@mahouse.gov and Senate Chair Sen. Becca Rausch at becca.rausch@masenate.gov no later than noon on Thursday, March 19, 2020 or reach out to your local delegation members.
