One of the most pressing issues on the minds of Hingham citizens these days is whether or not it makes sense for the town to purchase the portion of Aquarion Water Company that serves Hingham, Hull, and part of Cohasset.
Some residents think that would be a wise move -- with an expected savings of about $50 million over 30 years, according to consultants hired by the town. Opponents, including some Hull residents, oppose such a purchase for a number of reasons.
Documents related to the years-long consideration of this issue are posted on the town website, https://www.hingham-ma.gov/ along with reports that were recently presented as part of a third-party review commissioned by the Town of Hingham. A Harbor Media video of the Jan. 10 meeting related to the findings in these reports is also posted on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52-fjibgrns&t=6s. Town Meeting 2019 voters may be asked to decide this question. What do YOU think?!
