Seeking Hopkinton’s Eldest Citizen

Announcement

The Town of Hopkinton is seeking its oldest citizen to be presented with a commemorative “Boston Post Cane”. The presentation of the cane is an honor that has been bestowed on the Town’s eldest citizen beginning in 1909. The tradition began when Edward Grozier, publisher of the Boston Globe, thought of distributing gold-headed canes to the oldest residents of New England communities.

The only requirement is that a resident be 90 years of age or older. When nominating an individual, please provide the name, proof of birth and residence address of the prospective candidate. Names of candidates should be sent to the Town Clerk’s Office, 1 Town House Road, Hopkinton, RI 02833 or by phone at 377-7777 or by email: townclerk@hopkintonri.org.

Deadline for submission: November 30, 2017

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
PY 17 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program

The Towns of East Greenwich, West Greenwich, Exeter, Hopkinton, North Kingstown, Charlestown, Richmond, Narragansett and South Kingstown (the “Towns”) will conduct a regional Public Hearing on their intent to file applications (individually) with the State of Rhode Island, Commerce Secretary, Office of Housing and Community Development (OHCD) for CDBG funds in the Program Year (PY) ’17 Program. This Hearing is being held in conformance with U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and OHCD regulations requiring that local residents be informed of such intent to apply and be given the opportunity to ask and have questions answered. The Hearing will include the presentation of local community development and housing needs and include discussion of past activity under the CDBG program.

There are two other Set Aside funds available; one for Affordable Housing Creation or Preservation and one for Economic Development (including job training). These two funds will also be discussed and the public is advised that the Towns may entertain applications for these funds as well. Finally, a discussion will be held concerning the State of Rhode Island Action Plan for the CDBG Program in general.

The Public Hearing will be held on Wednesday, 1 November, 2017 at 4:00 P. M. in the Council Chambers at the Richmond Town Hall, 5 Richmond Townhouse Road (intersection of routes 138 and 112), Richmond, RI.
