Selectman Bob Fleming took a moment during the February 2 Selectmen meeting to recognize his colleagues, Selectmen Ken Picard and Jim Brochu, for giving up a Saturday to switch all the light bulbs at the fire station to LED.
Fleming said their commitment goes beyond participating in meetings and working out of the office. “I know both my colleagues, as well as Danny Brochu, spent the greater part of a Saturday doing that on their day off. Well done Gentlemen,” said Fleming.
According to Fleming, the town will see substantial savings in energy costs due to the effort of the three men. The effort will also bolster the Town’s Green Community status and will allow Upton to apply for more grant money.
