Board of Health Regulation Concerning Sanitary, Safe Marijuana Sales Enacted

Following a public hearing on April 30, 2018, the Conway BOARD OF HEALTH voted to enact a regulation entitled “Regulation to Ensure the Sanitary and Safe Operation of Marijuana Establishments and the Sale of Marijuana”.   The regulation includes, but is not limited to, the rules for obtaining a Marijuana Operating Permit from the Board of Health and for the manufacture of edible marijuana and food products containing marijuana. The regulation went into effect on May 1, 2018.  Copies of the Regulation are available at the Conway Town Offices, 32 Main Street, at the Board of Health offices, 5 Academy Hill Rd., on the BOH page of the town website, by calling 413-369-4235 or by email to boardofhealth@townofconway.com.

Annual Transfer Station Stickers Now Available

In August, residents using the transfer station will be required to purchase a dated and numbered sticker for their vehicle.  Stickers will change annually, following the fiscal year, and will cost $10 each.  They will be available at the Transfer Station – residents may be required to provide the attendant with proof of residence.   Stickers will also be available from the Town Clerk’s office either in person (Tue., Thur., and Fri. a.m. 9-12) or by mail with SASE (P. O. Box 240, Conway, MA   01341).

This return to Annual Transfer Station Stickers is our first step in an effort to reduce trash totals, as it has come to our attention that the high trash total in Conway is due, in part, to trash coming in from a significant number of individuals who no longer live in Conway, but still have their town stickers and visit to use our Residents-Only “free” trash disposal.   Residents who have lived in Conway for 30 years or more may recognize the return to matching dated stickers with actual households.

For the moment, Pay-As-You-Throw will be waiting in the wings. Meanwhile, let’s see if we can boost our recycling totals.
