Brockton principal on school safety from the Enterprise

Water deal draining Brockton coffers

Now, the city’s top lawyer is asking the water and sewer departments to determine if Aquaria might be violating its 20-year contract with the city, signed in 2002.
“We are in the process of gathering information from the relevant departments as to whether or not there is a basis to believe there’s a violation of the contract,” said City Solicitor Philip Nessralla Jr.
The inquiry could lead to Brockton hiring an independent legal firm to look into the terms of the contract.
“We’d like to bring resolution because we know it’s some concern to some city leaders as well as city residents,” said Nessralla, adding Mayor Linda Balzotti backs the inquiry.

To The Newtown Community

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
