5 Things: Police Chief up for Confirmation, Light Board, College Planning Workshop
A run-down of events and other useful information for your life in Braintree on Oct. 16, 2012.
Born on this day in history: Oscar Wilde (1854), Suzanne Somers (1946), actor Tim Robbins (1958) and musician John Mayer (1977).
Earlier, at 6:30 p.m., the Committee on Ordinance & Rules will consider accepting Stone Crest Drive as a public way. Also, at 7 p.m., the full council will meet shortly to send the police chief request to committee, which will then send it back to the council at 7:30 p.m. This will allow councilors to follow charter rules and still confirm the chief with "same night action" – unless one councilor objects.
