STURBRIDGE — The Board of Selectmen received reports detailing January and February developments from various department heads at its meeting Monday night, March 21, including Police Chief Thomas Ford III, Fire Chief Leonard Senecal, Building Inspector David Lindberg and Department of Public Works Director Greg Morse.

According to Ford and Senecal, the first two months of 2011 were relatively quiet for both the police and fire departments. Ford updated the board about a successful lockdown drill that took place on Feb. 10 at Tantasqua Regional High School before briefly explaining the steps involved with facilitating a lockdown. January and February were busier for Morse and the DPW, who dealt with one of the snowiest months on record when approximately 57 inches of snow piled up in January alone.

"We weren't able to get caught up with all of the snow and start pushing it back until the mid to latter part of February," Morse said. "Luckily, we haven't had to make any major repairs to the equipment, which is all in pretty good shape."

Lindberg was asked questions about procedures and operations, particularly the process by which he handles enforcement of various violations in town.
