Senator Spilka and Representative Dykema Announce Passage of Hopkinton Bill

November 24, 2009

Senator Karen Spilka and Representative Carolyn Dykema announced today the passage of a home rule petition they filed on behalf of the town of Hopkinton.

The bill, ‘“An Act Providing for the Transfer of Certain State Real Property to the Town of Hopkinton” into law was authorized by the Select Board in July 2008 and sponsored by Hopkinton’s legislative delegation. It was signed Monday, November 23rd by Governor Patrick and is now Chapter 162 of the Acts of 2009.

This bill will finalize the transfer of the Whitehall Reservoir Dam and Gatehouse from the Commonwealth to the town of Hopkinton.

Working together, Rep. Carolyn Dykema and Sen. Karen Spilka pushed this legislation as well as legislation on behalf of the Hopkinton Department of Public Works through the House and Senate so it would be on the Governor’s desk and signed into law before Thanksgiving.
