Selectmen to Vote on Condo Trash Pick-Up

Board members will also talk about authorizing the state to take jurisdiction over King's Beach.


Selectmen tonight will vote on whether to provide trash removal at condos. 

The board has talked about trash service for condos before but tonight will be the first official vote.

In September the motion for the proposal did not get a second.

Board members failed to agree on whether it was fair that more than 600 condominium owners should pay both town property taxes and condo fees that includes a fee for private trash collection.

Board Chairman Richard Malagrifa proposed that the town pay $17,656 to collect some of the trash at four condominiums — Crowne Point, Summit Estates, The Glen and Hawthorne's Crossing.

Selectman Jill Sullivan will not vote on the trash pickup issue because it has been ruled that she has a conflict of interest, said the board's chairman.

Sullivan owns and leases a unit in one of the condominium buildings that would receive town trash pickup, if it is approved.

The board will also talk about, and possibly vote on, a state Department of Conservation Act authorizing the return of jurisdiction and control over King's Beach from the town of Swampscott.

The board meets at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
