Retail store cap
So the MA General Laws will allow the City of Melrose to cap the number of recreational marijuana sellers at two (actually could be one), but we can have a ‘nail salon’ on every corner. Whatever happened to whatever the market wil bear?

water and sewer rates increases
It’s interesting the water and sewer rates increases will be recommended on April 30, 2019. Four weeks after the special election. Apparently the city doesn’t want residents to be thinking about the increase water& sewer rates.

There is power in numbers. A group of citizens agreeing to run as a slate for both boards, giving each other the strength and wisdom base (since there is a steep learning curve), would begin to fix things. Melrose does not need more of the current batch of clones....

Maybe I have forgotten the “mechanics” involved, but why wouldn’t the man recently arrested for “performing a sexual act on himself” in his car at the Wyoming Cemetery, upon seeing the police approaching, just stop???
