4. Davis Street Runoff Issue. During the rain storm last week, Zisk said that
he received a call from an abutter (Dennis Michalik) regarding runoff
problems on Route 16 where the busses are being parked. Zisk went to
inform the Town Administrator Michael Guzinski and Selectman Scott
Medeiros. Zisk then called the Highway Superintendent John Furno to ask

found that the water was running from the property into the side of the
