SHIRLEY — The recent drawdown of the water level at Lake Shirley — which Shirley ceded to Lunenburg some years ago with certain conservation restrictions — allegedly violated an order of conditions issued by the Conservation Commission.
Lunenburg officials haven’t responded to a notice from the commission regarding the issue, said Board of Selectmen Chairman David Swain. At the March 5 Board of Selectmen’s meeting, Swain turned to the other member present, Charles Shultz, and asked, “Shouldn’t the board intervene?”
Shultz said it should.
Town administrator Kyle Keady has been asked to contact Lunenburg’s town manager or financial officer to find out why the town hasn’t responded to the order of conditions and report back to the board. — M.E. Jones
