SHIRLEY -- Selectmen quickly polished off a single but key item on their agenda Wednesday night, Aug. 20, when they and the Planning Board appointed two new members to the Planning Board. Finally.

The pending business has been on the selectmen's agenda for several weeks but was repeatedly tabled when the short-handed Planning Board could not round up a quorum.

Thomas Vachon and William Lampros were seated at the recent meeting, held specifically for the purpose.

The two new members join three veteran Planning Board members: Tim Bresnahan, Susan Snyder and Chairman Jonathan Greeno.
