Selectmen to host Hingham board about possible Aquarion acquisition

The Hull Board of Selectmen will meet with their counterparts from Hingham to learn the details of that town's proposed buyout of Aquarion Water Co. operations that service customers in Hull, Hingham, and Cohasset.

This public forum, which begins at 8:15 p.m. Thursday (March 21) at Hull High School, represents the only Hull meeting for local residents to learn about the plan from Hingham officials’ viewpoint.

For reasons that are unclear, Hull selectmen chose not to hold a separate meeting on this topic, but included the agenda item within the board's regular Thursday night meeting. Selectmen did, however, move the meeting to the high school's Exhibition Room on the second floor to accommodate more residents who want to attend.
