2010 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

State of the Economy: 

As the national econonnic downturn continues. Town revenues also continue to shrink due to 
declines in excise tax receipts, new construction, and state aid. Due to cautious budgeting and 
careful stewardship of available funds, the Town has been able to maintain services and stay 
within Prop 2 Yi mandates. 

The unexpected use of free cash and stabilization funds to underwrite the deficits of the Water 
Enterprise Fund has severely depleted the Town's resources and precluded its ability to absorb 
emergency costs and unexpected expenses. As a result reductions in other department budgets 
are required to balance FYll. 

While not unique to Cohasset, unfunded pension and health care liability is one of the biggest 
issues affecting our fiscal stability. As recommended by the Town auditor, a plan needs to be 
established to consistently fund our actuarially required annual pension contribution. 

Also of concern is our long-term bond obligation that is currently at about 20% of the budget. 
The annual principal and interest payment is projected to be over $7million each year for the 
next several years. Deliberate attention must be paid to any future long-term debt and its affect 
on the Town's debt ratio. 

The Board thanks our Town employees for their cooperation and dedication during these 
difficult times. 

New Chief of Police Sworn In: 

Subsequent to a search conducted in late 2009, and consistent with the recommendation of the 
Town Manager and the Search Committee, Mark DeLuca was approved by unanimous vote of 
the Board as Chief of Police in January. At the February 1 Selectmen's meeting, Town Clerk, 
Marion Douglas, swore in the new Police Chief in a room full of members of the Cohasset Police 
Department and Chief's family and friends. Chief DeLuca addressed the audience saying it was 
an honor to have been hired. 

The Board of Selectman also thanked Chief Brian Noonan for his service as Interim Police Chief. 

Water Enterprise Fund Deficit: 

The Water Enterprise Fund deficit was the predominate issue in calendar year 2010. As a result 
of the lateness of the disclosure coupled with the extent of the deficit and the uncertainty as to 
the reliability of the accounting, the Board voted to remove the Water Enterprise Fund from 
the FYll Budget presented at the 2010 Annual Town Meeting for consideration at a Special 
Town Meeting in June. 

The Water Planning Group, comprised of representatives from the Board of Selectmen, 
Advisory Board, Capital Budget, Water Commission and citizens was appointed in March and 



21 



charged with investigating the revenue and expenditure issues and making recommendations 
prior to the Special Town Meeting. 

The June Special Town Meeting transferred $335,000 from the Town's Stabilization Fund to the 
Water Enterprise Fund to provide an additional source of funds to meet the FYIO Water 
Department appropriations as voted at the 2009 Annual Town Meeting. Town Meeting also 
voted to a) amend the schedule of water rates approving major increases in the fixed quarterly 
charge and usage charges in order to meet the FYll Water Department budget and b) 
appropriated $300,000 to fund capital improvement projects requested by the Water 
Commission. Additionally, Town Meeting amended Article 19 of the 2003 Annual Town meeting 
by adding the following words to the end of said motions: "to be managed jointly by the Board 
of Water Commissioners and the Town Manager". 

In June, the Board voted to authorize an audit for the water and sewer enterprise funds starting 
with the calendar year 2004, including Town Meeting articles, the governance and structure of 
the department and the operating budget beginning with FY08. The Advisory Board's Reserve 
Fund funded the audit. [The Water and Sewer Enterprise Funds will be charged back for this 
cost in the FY12 budget.] An RFP was issued and the contract awarded to Melanson and Health. 
[Due to unanticipated difficulty in obtaining documentation, the audit took longer than 
expected: presented on January 25, 2011 the audit is available in its entirety on the town 
website.] 

Water Commissioner John McNabb, Jr. resigned and in August Peter DeCaprio was appointed to 
fill the slot. 

The November Special Town Meeting voted to decrease the Water Enterprise budget and 
increase the Fire Department budget by appropriating $247,000 from the Town's taxation and 
revenues, free cash (surplus revenue), and general operating accounts to fund the Fire 
Prevention Fee. 

During the course of the audit, a Bond Anticipation Note for water and sewer projects came up 
for renewal. $150,000 was transferred from the Water Enterprise Fund debt appropriation to 
remedy operating expenses misappropriated as capital expense and charged against the bond. 
This action allowed the bond issuance. 

Town Manager and Finance Director Resign: 

In September, the Town Manager, William Griffin, and Finance Director, Michael Buckley, 
resigned. The Board agreed to hire a professional Interim Town Manager and that due to Mr. 
Griffin's imminent departure date, the Board would make the appointment. Steve Lombard was 
appointed Interim Town Manager in October. 

The Board decided the new Town Manager should hire the new Finance Director, however, it 
quickly became apparent that it was impossible to function effectively without an Interim 
Finance Director and Mr. Lombard engaged the services of an independent accountant while 



22 



conducting a search for the permanent Finance Director. [John Stanbrook was hired as Finance 
Director in January 2011.] 

The Board requested Mr. Lombard continue to serve as Interim Town Manager until after the 
2011 Annual Town Meeting. They decided the services of a professional consultant were 
required to assist in the search and screening process for the permanent Town Manager. An 
RFP was issued. [Tom Groux of Groux & Associates was hired and the Screening Committee was 
appointed in March 2011.] 

Other Milestones 

Two large commercial developments, Avalon and Old Colony Square, completed the LIP 
application process and their regulatory agreements were approved and signed by the Board. 
Each development has an affordable component and with the addition of these units, the Town 
will be in compliance with the State 40B requirement until the next census in 2020. 

With the completion of the Little Harbor Sewer Project, the 2010 Annual Town Meeting set the 
betterment rate at 2.25% [2% for the SRF/.25% for Town administration]. 

The Open Space and Recreation Committee submitted the revised Open Space and Recreation 
Plan to the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. Approval of this plan makes 
the Town eligible to apply for grant opportunities. Once accepted by the EOEEA, the Plan is 
valid until 2017. 

The Water Commission holds a public form on Water Quality in January to address growing 
concern In the community about the color, taste and safety of our drinking water. 
Representatives from the EPA and DEP were in attendance. 

In January, the Board appointed the Stormwater Advisory Committee. The Committee is 
charged with conducting public education, providing opportunities for public discussion, 
conducting surveys of flood prone areas, seeking grants and providing assistance to the Town 
Manager in preparing required regulatory reports. In May the Committee held a public 
meeting. 

In May local Astronaut Stephen Bowen took a Cohasset Town Flag into space. [It will be 
returned in May 2011 to the Town and displayed in a prominent location.] 

In June, the Council on Aging achieved a landmark in the New Senior Center Project with the 
Board's approval of submission of a Home Rule Petition to allow an exchange of land between 
the Cohasset Swim Center and the Town. This swap, approved at the 2009 Annual Town 
Meeting, allows for adequate land on which to site the proposed Senior Center. 

After nearly five years of discussion, the Board voted in August to reject the Army Corps of 
Engineers Saltwater Restoration Project proposed for Treats Pond. Still unresolved are the 



23 



Town's rights and obligations under the Bigelow Easement. Approximately 3 34 years remain on 
the 5-year access license. 

In August, the Harbor Master was informed that the Army Corps of Engineers received funding 
to begin the sampling and testing required for the dredging of the entrance of the channel and 
the inner Harbor channel. If the testing is successful, environmental permits will be sought and 
federal funding will need to be secured for plans, specifications and the dredging. 

The Water Commission came before the Board in August and subsequently conducted a public 
hearing seeking approval for an access road to the Bear Hill water tanks for installation of 
AT&T cell antennas. [After a second public hearing and much discussion, approval was granted 
in March 2011.] 

The 2009 Annual Town Meeting authorized funding of a Notice of Intent and Operating & 
Management Plan for Cat Dam. In September 2010, the NOI was submitted to the Conservation 
Committee. In November abutters to Cat Dam petitioned the Selectmen to withdraw the CLE 
NOI and replace it with an NOI paid for and prepared by the citizen group. The petition was 
granted by a majority vote of the Board, the new NOI submitted in December and is currently in 
the permitting phase before ConCom. 

In November, Town Counsel presented a seminar to Town officials and employees to ensure we 
understand and are in compliance with the Attorney General's revisions to the Open Meeting 
Law. 

JFK Systems submits an Information Technology Master Plan in November and is reviewed by 
the Town Manager and the Capital Budget Committee. [The first phase of the implementation 
will be voted at this Annual Town Meeting.] 

Five years in the making, the James Brook Culvert Rehabilitation/Tide Gate Installation and 
Jacobs Meadow Salt Marsh Restoration Project is permitted in December. [Completion of the 
project is projected for June 2011.] 

The Cohasset Girls Basketball team competes at Boston Garden in March and wins the State 
Championship! In June the Cohasset La Crosse and Baseball teams win their respective State 
Championships! 

Many challenges face us in the coming year that will require strong leadership and a citizenry

ANNUAL REPORT 

REPORT OF TOWN COUNSEL 

2010 

This year was a very active and successful year for the Law Department: 

1. Advice & Legal Documents . Numerous advisory opinions were rendered throughout 
the year to various Town officials and Boards relating to a wide variety of issues and subjects. 
Frequent and ongoing attention was given to reviewing and/or drafting Bylaws, numerous 
contract documents and agreements, easements, procurement documents, public road 
documents. Warrants for Town meetings (including two special town meetings and the annual 
town meeting), compliance with State Ethics Act, Open Meeting Law, public records requests, 
various Town rules and regulations (including new/revised subdivision regulations and Wind 
Turbine issues), subdivision control issues for proposed developments, ballot questions, and 
other legal documents. During the year, the Commonwealth's newly revised open meeting law 
and new open meeting regulations from the Attorney General's office took effect, and we 
undertook a variety of steps to provide training to the town on the new requirements, including 
a presentation to town officials of an open meeting law seminar 

2. Administrative Agency Proceedings . The Town was involved with a number of state or 
federal administrative agencies, including issues before Department of Environmental 
Protection, Alcohol Beverage Control Commission, Attorney General of the Commonwealth, 
Lottery Commission (Keno Licenses), Secretary of State's Public Records Office, and the Army 
Corps of Engineers. 

3. Projects . We assisted with issues related to Wind Energy, storm water management 
and flood control issues, the Community Preservation Act, various road issues. Little 

Harbor/ Atlantic Avenue sewer expansion, the Avalon, Village Business and T.O.D. proposals, the 
Cook Estate/Abbott Development issues. Central Cohasset Sewer Treatment Plant Expansion 
Project issues, licensing issues, artificial turf at Alumni Field, the proposed senior center, the 
MBTA Greenbush line, 40B Comprehensive Permit issues, affordable housing issues, Comcast 
and Verizon Cable Television licenses, various environmental regulatory issues involving Cat 
Dam, Treats Pond, and Jacobs Meadow, enforcement procedures for various town agencies, 
regionalization of public safety dispatching, municipal harbor plan questions, town manager 
transition issues, possible sports complex, triathlon issues, and acquisition of watershed 
properties to protect the town's water supply. 



25 



4. Labor Issues . We assisted the Town in general employee matters and in connection 
with employee grievances, labor arbitrations and retirement issues. We also provided advice 
from time to time during the year regarding the interpretation and application of collective 
bargaining agreements and the processing of grievances. In addition, several non-union 
personnel issues, including possible disciplinary proceedings, occurred during this year. The 
Town entered into an Inter-Municipal Agreement with the Towns of Hingham, Norwell and Hull 
to form a regional dispatch center in Hingham. We have been working with labor counsel from 
the other Towns to bargain with the various unions over the labor issues involved in moving to 
a regionalized dispatch center.

REPORT OF THE TOWN CLERK 
2010 

On January 19*^ a Special State Election was held due to the passing of Senator Kennedy. In 
addition to our regularly scheduled town meetings and elections we had an extra Special Town 
Meeting on June 14^*^ 

After many years, the vital records bill passed the legislature in September. The first phase of the Vitals 
Information Partnership (VIP) will be a web-based vitals registration and statistics systems for births, and 
eventually deaths and marriages. The birth module is expected to be complete in January and early 
February. Clerks throughout the Commonwealth will be able to register, amend, issue and enter new 
and delayed birth certificates. Also, birth records and amendments created from 1987 will be 
forwarded into the system. At this time, the system will only allow records from your community, but in 
the future issuance may be state-wide. Of course, the ideal vital record system would be the same 
system, same certificates, and same regulations for all the states - but to have the same forms and 
access for all the cities and towns is a huge step forward. 

Also, new election laws allow military and overseas voters in Massachusetts to vote absentee in 
elections by using the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB). After voting the FWAB, the voter may 
submit it by mail or electronically. By emailing or faxing the voted FWAB, the voter waives the right to 
the secrecy of the ballot and signs and dates a statement indicating this. 

In addition, I am again planning to submit an application to the Community Preservation 
Committee for further funding for additional restoration and shelving for our vault. I appreciate 
all the support I have received on this long term project. 

It is certainly with mixed emotions that after serving as Town Clerk for nineteen years, I have 
decided not to seek re-election in 2011. I appreciate the confidence the town has had in me 
and the opportunity to see how municipal government is run - our town in particular - and to 
move forward to the computer age and beyond. While working here I have met so many 
wonderful people. The Town of Cohasset is a beautiful place. I have been able to view 
Cohasset Common and see the children skating, the artists painting, the farmer's market, dog 
shows, exercise classes and so much more and to be only minutes away if my family needed 
me. 

As always, I would like to thank all town officials, department heads, town employees, election 
workers, committees and the citizens of Cohasset. Without them I could not have done my job. 
Special appreciation goes to Frances L. Marks, former Town Clerk, Jacquelyn R. McGuire my 
former assistant from 1992 to 1999, and to Carol L. St Pierre who has been my assistant since 
1999. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Marion L. Douglas 
Town Clerk

QUESTION 1: Law Proposed by Initiative Petition 

Sales Tax on Alcoholic Beverages 

Do you approve of a law summarized below, on which no vote was taken by the Senate or the 
House of Representatives before May 4, 2010? 

SUMMARY 

This proposed law would remove the Massachusetts sales tax on alcoholic beverages and 
alcohol, where the sale of such beverages and alcohol or their importation into the state is 
already subject to a separate excise tax under state law. The proposed law would take effect on 
January 1, 2011. 

A YES VOTE would remove the state sales tax on alcoholic beverages and alcohol where their 
sale or importation into the state is subject to an excise tax under state law. 

A NO VOTE would make no change in the state sales tax on alcoholic beverages and alcohol. 

Yes 

No

QUESTION 2: Law Proposed by Initiative Petition Comprehensive Permits for 
Low- or Moderate- Income Housing 

Do you approve of a law summarized below, on which no vote was taken by the Senate or the House of 
Representatives before May 4, 2010? 

SUMMARY 

This proposed law would repeal an existing state law that allows a qualified organization wishing to build 
government-subsidized housing that includes low- or moderate-income units to apply for a single 
comprehensive permit from a city or town's zoning board of appeals (ZBA), instead of separate permits 
from each local agency or official having jurisdiction over any aspect of the proposed housing. The repeal 
would take effect on January 1, 2011, but would not stop or otherwise affect any proposed housing that 
had already received both a comprehensive permit and a building permit for at least one unit. 

Under the existing law, the ZBA holds a public hearing on the application and considers the 
recommendations of local agencies and officials. The ZBA may grant a comprehensive permit that may 
include conditions or requirements concerning the height, site plan, size, shape, or building materials of the

housing. Persons aggrieved by the ZBA's decision to grant a permit may appeal it to a court. If the ZBA 
denies the permit or grants it with conditions or requirements that make the housing uneconomic to build 
or to operate, the applicant may appeal to the state Housing Appeals Committee (HAC). 

After a hearing, if the HAC rules that the ZBA's denial of a comprehensive permit was unreasonable and not 
consistent with local needs, the HAC orders the ZBA to issue the permit. If the HAC rules that the ZBA's 
decision issuing a comprehensive permit with conditions or requirements made the housing uneconomic to 
build or operate and was not consistent with local needs, the HAC orders the ZBA to modify or remove any 
such condition or requirement so as to make the proposal no longer uneconomic. The HAC cannot order 
the ZBA to issue any permit that would allow the housing to fall below minimum safety standards or site 
plan requirements. If the HAC rules that the ZBA's action was consistent with local needs, the HAC must 
uphold it even if it made the housing uneconomic. The HAC's decision is subject to review in the courts. 

A condition or requirement makes housing "uneconomic" if it would prevent a public agency or non-profit 
organization from building or operating the housing except at a financial loss, or it would prevent a limited 
dividend organization from building or operating the housing without a reasonable return on its 
investment. 

A ZBA's decision is "consistent with local needs" if it applies requirements that are reasonable in view of 
the regional need for low- and moderate-income housing and the number of low-income persons in the 
city or town, as well as the need to protect health and safety, promote better site and building design, and 
preserve open space, if those requirements are applied as equally as possible to both subsidized and 
unsubsidized housing. Requirements are considered "consistent with local needs" if more than 10% of the 
city or town's housing units are low- or moderate-income units or if such units are on sites making up at 
least 1.5% of the total private land zoned for residential, commercial, or industrial use in the city or town. 
Requirements are also considered "consistent with local needs" if the application would result, in any one 
calendar year, in beginning construction of low- or moderate-income housing on sites making up more than 
0.3% of the total private land zoned for residential, commercial, or industrial use in the city or town, or on 
ten acres, whichever is larger. 

The proposed law states that if any of its parts were declared invalid, the other parts would stay in effect. 

A YES VOTE would repeal the state law allowing the issuance of a single comprehensive permit to build 
housing that includes low- or moderate-income units. 

A NO VOTE would make no change in the state law allowing issuance of such a comprehensive permit. 

Yes 

No

QUESTION 3: Law Proposed by Initiative Petition 

Sales and Use Tax Rates 

Do you approve of a law summarized below, on which no vote was taken by the Senate or the House of 
Representatives before May 4, 2010? 

SUMMARY 

This proposed law would reduce the state sales and use tax rates (which were 6.25% as of September 2009) 
to 3% as of January 1, 2011. It would make the same reduction in the rate used to determine the amount to 
be deposited with the state Commissioner of Revenue by non-resident building contractors as security for 
the payment of sales and use tax on tangible personal property used in carrying out their contracts. 

The proposed law provides that if the 3% rates would not produce enough revenues to satisfy any lawful 
pledge of sales and use tax revenues in connection with any bond, note, or other contractual obligation, 
then the rates would instead be reduced to the lowest level allowed by law. 

The proposed law would not affect the collection of moneys due the Commonwealth for sales, storage, use 
or other consumption of tangible personal property or services occurring before January 1, 2011. 

The proposed law states that if any of its parts were declared invalid, the other parts would stay in effect. 

A YES VOTE would reduce the state sales and use tax rates to 3%. 

A NO VOTE would make no change in the state sales and use tax rates. 

Yes 

No

Report of the Town Treasurer-Collector 

The following is the Annual Report for the Office of Treasurer-Collector. It contains a 
Reconciliation of Town Cash Accounts, Outstanding Receivables and a listing of wages 
and salaries paid for calendar year 2010. 

In Fiscal Year 2010, the Office processed approximately 12,687 Real Estate and Personal 
Property tax bills, 7,866 Motor Vehicle Excise tax bills, 400 Boat Excise tax bill and 
10,679 Water and Sewer bills. 

In addition, the Office is responsible for processing payroll for all Town employees, 
issuing all accounts payable checks and maintaining custody of all Town receipts. 

Once again considerable efforts were made to contact taxpayers and collect taxes in 
arrears. 

I would like to thank the residents of Cohasset for the opportunity to serve the Town 
and I would like to thank Kristin Curran and Sandra Parnell for their efforts. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

Linda M. Litchfield 
Treasurer-Collector

2010 BOARD OF ASSESSORS 



The property tax levy is the revenue a community can raise through real and personal property 
taxes and is the largest source of revenue for the Town of Cohasset. The property tax levy for 
Fiscal Year 2010 was $27,362,660.01 representing 67% of the $40,559,387.18 budget. The 
residential share of the levy is 93%, while commercial, industrial, and personal property 
account for 7%. 

It is the responsibility of the Assessors' Office to establish fair market value for all properties in 
the Town of Cohasset. During Fiscal Year 2010, the Assessors' Office staff conducted an 
analysis of all arms-length sales that occurred in the town during calendar year 2008, reported 
sales trends in the real estate market, and applied interim adjustments. The Department of 
Revenue certified the values for Fiscal Year 2010. The total valuation of the town was 
$2,438,739,752 with a certified uniform tax rate of $11.22 per thousand dollars of assessment. 

In addition, the Assessors' Office is responsible for the assessment and commitment of motor 
vehicle excise and boat excise, betterment assessments, and the collection of new growth 
based on building construction. During 2010, the staff conducted field inspections or review of 
all building permits in the Town of Cohasset. 

The Board of Assessors would like to acknowledge Deputy Assessor, Mary Quill, Assistant 
Assessor, Debra Krupczak and Administrative Assistant, Ellen Warner for their professionalism 
throughout the year. The Board of Assessors would also like to acknowledge Debra Krupczak 
for her eighteen years of service to the Cohasset Assessors' Office and welcome our new 
Assistant Assessor, Warren Bruce Lane. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Elsa J. Miller, Chairperson 
Michael C. Patrolia, Clerk 
Mary E. Granville, Member

2010 Board of Health Annual Report 

The Board re-organized in April of 2010. Peggy S. Chapman, APRN, BC returned as Chairperson, 
Robin M. Lawrence, DDS, MPH elected as Clerk and Stephen N. Bobo as member. Joseph R. 
Godzik, VMD remains the Health Agent on a part-time basis and Tara N. Tradd, Health 
Inspector/Office Manager. Mary Goodwin, RN continued as public health nurse and Mary 
Whitley as her assistant. 

Water Quality in Cohasset Harbor was monitored by the Board and students from the Center 
for Student Coastal Research (CSCR). Enterococci levels in the area of Bassing Beach were 
reduced this year resulting in (1) beach closure. This was probably due to the rehabilitation of 
the "Parker Avenue Cut" which re-established water flows from the Gulf River through the 
"Cut" to Bailey's Creek. This should produce improved water quality in the Harbor over the 
long term. One known possible source of pollution remains to be remedied the septic system 
at the Lightkeepers. Town Finances have kept this facility from being connected to the 
municipal sewer system. 

Reduced state funding caused a cutback in water quality monitoring in Little Harbor. However, 
major beaches Sandy Beach, Sandy Cove and Black Rock Beach continued to be monitored for 
bacterial quality on a weekly basis from mid June to Labor Day. For the first time in memory 
Sandy Beach was closed for more than a single day due to higher bacteria counts. The source 
of these organisms could not be determined. 

With the HlNl Influenza pandemic warning in the spring, the "seasonal" flu season was the 
Board's primary concern. The HlNl virus strain was incorporated into the 2010 "seasonal" 
vaccine. This allowed virtually anyone to receive the vaccine. The Board's policy is to give 
vaccine to only those ages 9 and older. Younger children are encouraged to go to their 
pediatrician. The Board distributed free vaccine from the state to local pediatric practices. As 
part of its ongoing Emergency Preparedness training, the Board participated in a regional flu 
clinic drill held at the Hanover Mall. Other towns participating were Hanover, Hingham, Hull, 
Norwell and Scituate. The clinic was run as an Incident Command exercise which allowed 
members to become more familiar with the Incident Command structure. 

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is an important and integral organization when any 
emergency arises. The MRC is a group of medical and non-medical volunteers who assist the 
regular Board of Health staff in emergencies. The Board is always looking for new members. 
Applications are available at the Board of Health office or at the Town website - 
www.townofcohasset.org . A recognition night for MRC volunteers was held in June at the 
South Shore Country Club. Volunteers from Cohasset, Hanover, Hingham, Hull, Norwell, 
Scituate and Weymouth were recognized. MRC jackets and emergency supplies were 
distributed to all who attended. 



141 



The Board hosted several MRC trainings covering shelter operations. Trainings continue here 
and in surrounding towns. 

During the December 26, 2010 storm many MRC members volunteered to staff the Cohasset 
shelter. But since it was only open for five (5) hours, no one was called in. Thanks to all who 
responded. 

At the Special Town Meeting in November, the Board proposed establishing the Septic 
Management Loan Program operated by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental 
Protection and funded by the State Revolving Fund. Monies from this fund are loaned to the 
Town at 0% interest and are used by homeowners to pay for sewer connections (from house to 
street) and repair failed septic systems. Monies are then loaned to homeowners at 2% or 5% 
interest, thereby reducing the cost of what could be a very expensive connection. The article 
proposing the establishment of the Program was defeated. The Board plans to present this 
article again at the 2011 Annual Town Meeting. 

As noted last year, the Tobacco Control Program was disestablished in 2009 because of lack of 
funding. This continued in 2010. However, there may be some regional funding available in 
2011 and the Board will be participating in this program if it becomes available. 

The Board wishes to thank all those who donate their time, talent and treasure to assure that 
the public health is protected and that Cohasset citizens enjoy the highest quality of life 
standards. 

The Board also recognizes the achievements of Tara Tradd who was re-elected to the Executive 
Committee of the Massachusetts Health Officers Association and to the Board of the CSCR here 
in Cohasset. 

The Board thanks all its volunteers who assist with programs and clinics. Much is accomplished 
through your continuous efforts. 

The Board is grateful to all who assist with programs and clinics through volunteer efforts and 
monetary donations throughout the year.

The Board received the following revenue during 2010: 



Licenses and Permits: $10,865.00 

Witnessing Percolation Testing: $ 2,240.00 

Disposal System Construction Permit $ 4,210.00 

Other: $ 13,374.00 
PHN Gift Account: $ 421.00 

Medicare Reimbursement: $ 579.83

2010 Nursing Annual Report 

Seasonal Flu clinics for senior citizens, high risk adults, pregnant women and children over the 
age of 9 years were held at the Town Hall. Clinics were also held at Harborview Housing, 
Cohasset Elder Affairs and Sunrise Assisted Living Center. To date, 600+ doses of flu vaccine 
have been administered. The Town of Cohasset along with 5 other south shore towns held a 
regional flu clinic at the Hanover Mall. The other towns in the group included Hull, Hingham, 
Scituate, Hanover and Norwell. This was done in coordination with Mass Dept. of Public Health 
and Region 4b Emergency Preparedness Coalition. The exercise was used as an emergency drill 
set up in the incident command structure. Approximately 208 doses of flu vaccine were 
administered. 

As of 12/8/10 the Cohasset Board of Health has gone live with MAVEN. Massachusetts Virtual 
Epidemiologic Network (MAVEN) is a new web-based disease surveillance and case 
management system that enables MDPH and local health to capture and transfer appropriate 
public health, laboratory, and clinical data efficiently and securely over the Internet in real- 
time. The system interfaces with electronic lab reporting efforts, has automatic (24/7/365) 
notification of state and local officials of any event requiring their attention and geographic 
information system (GIS) activities. MAVEN will replace the current paper-based methods of 
data exchange between MDPH, local public health, and clinicians. 

A sun awareness program was held at Sandy Beach in Cohasset in July. Working with the 
Melanoma Education Foundation sunscreen and informational packets were distributed to 
beachgoers. A skin analyzer was used to show sun damage along with education about the 
importance of prevention. 

Ongoing participation in the TRIAD which was reintroduced in Cohasset in November.

REPORT OF PLYMOUTH COUNTY MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 

The Commissioners of the Plymouth County Mosquito Control Project are pleased to submit the 
following report of our activities during 2010. 

The Project is a special district created by the State Legislature in 1957, and is now composed of 
all Plymouth County towns, the City of Brockton, and the Town of Cohasset in Norfolk County. 
The Project is a regional response to a regional problem, and provides a way of organizing 
specialized equipment, specially trained employees, and mosquito control professionals into a 
single agency with a broad geographical area of responsibility. 

The 2010 season began with a high water table and above average spring rain fall. Plymouth 
County was declared a federal disaster area because of the spring flooding in March and April. 
As we expected the initial requests for spraying were numerous but we were prepared for a 
busy season, not knowing it was going to be the worst Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) threat 
in 100 years. Efforts were directed at larval mosquitoes starting with the spring brood. Ground 
and aerial larviciding were accomplished using B.t.i., an environmentally selective bacterial 
agent. Over 11,000 acres were aerial lavicided using the Project plane. Upon emergence of the 
spring brood of mosquitoes, ultra-low volume adulticiding began on June 3, 2010 and ended on 
September 18, 2010. The Project responded to 16,641 spray requests for service from 
residents. 

In response to the continued threat of mosquito borne diseases in the district, we increased our 
surveillance trapping, aerial and ground larviciding, and adult spray in areas of concern to 
protect public health. 

Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) was first isolated from Culiseta melanura, a bird biting 
species, by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health in Lakeville on July 12, 2010. Of the 
season's total of 54 EEE isolates, were trapped in Plymouth County as follows: 



Species

2010 Annual Report Page - 3 - 

Based on guidelines defined by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health "Vector Control 
Plan to Prevent EEE" in Massachusetts, ten Plymouth County towns were elevated from "Low 
Level " or "Moderate Level' for EEE Risk" category to "High Level" EEE risk category. All other 
towns in Plymouth County Mosquito Project remained in the "Low Level Risk" category. An 
aerial intervention was needed to effectively reduce human biting bridge vector mosquitoes as 
well as enzootic transmission of EEE. Governor Patrick, announced aerial spraying would take 
place on August 4, 5, & 6, 2010 in southeastern Ma. Communities sprayed within the district 
included Lakeville, Bridgewater, Carver, East Bridgewater, Halifax, Hanson, Pembroke, Duxbury, 
Kingston, Plympton, Middleboro, Rochester and Mattapoisett to help prevent further spread of 
EEE infected mosquitoes. In 2010 there were two human cases, one lived within the county the 
other traveled within the community. Two horses died as a result of contracting EEEV in 
Plymouth County. 

West Nile Virus was also found within the district. A total of four isolations of WNV mosquitoes 
were found. Culex pipiens bird biters were trapped in Halifax on 6/30, and Brockton on 8/11 
and Culiseta melanura in Plympton on 9/1 and Lakeville on 9/20 . We are also pleased to report 
that in 2010 that there were no human or horse West Nile Virus cases in Plymouth Town of 
Cohasset 

County. As part of our West Nile Virus control strategy a total of 59,251 catch basins were 
treated with larvicide in all of our towns to prevent West Nile Virus (WNV). 

The public health problem of EEE and WNV continues to ensure cooperation between the 
Plymouth County Mosquito Control Project, local Boards of Health and the Massachusetts 
Department of Public Health. In an effort to keep the public informed, EEE and WNV activity 
updates are regularly posted on Massachusetts Department of Public Health website at 
www. state. ma. us/dph/wnv/wnvl.htm . 

The figures specific to the Town of Cohasset are given below. While mosquitoes do not respect 
town lines the information given below does provide a tally of the activities which have had the 
greatest impact on the health and comfort of Cohasset residents. 

Insecticide Application. 477 acres were treated using truck mounted sprayers for control of 
adult mosquitoes. More than one application was made to the same site if mosquitoes 
reinvaded the area. The first treatments were made in June and the last in September. 

During the summer 1,056 catch basins were treated to prevent the emergence of Culex pipiens, 
a known mosquito vector in West Nile Virus transmission.

2010 Annual Report Page - 4 - 

Our greatest effort has been targeted at mosquitoes in the larval stage, which can be found in 
woodland pools, swamps, marshes and other standing water areas. Inspectors continually 
gather data on these sites and treat with highly specific larvicides when immature mosquitoes 
are present. Last year a total of 28 inspections were made to catalogued breeding sites. 

Water Management. During 2010 crews removed blockages, brush and other obstructions 
from 225 linear feet of ditches and streams to prevent overflows or stagnation that can result in 
mosquito breeding. This work, together with machine reclamation, is most often carried out in 
the fall and winter. 

Machine Reclamation. 200 linear feet of upland ditch was reconstructed in Cohasset using the 
Project's track driven excavator. 

Finally, we have been tracking response time, which is the time between notice of a mosquito 
problem and response by one of our inspectors. The complaint response time in the Town of 
Cohasset was less than three days with more than 231 complaints answered. 

Mosquito Survey. Our surveillance showed that the dominant mosquitoes throughout the 
district was generally Culiseta melanura and Coquillettidia perturbans. In the Town of Cohasset 
the three most common mosquitoes were Cs. Vexans,, Cq. pertubrans and Ur. saphirina. 

We encourage citizens or municipal officials to visit our website at 
www.plvmouthmosquito.com or call our office for information about mosquitoes, mosquito- 
borne diseases, control practices, or any other matters of concern.

COHASSET ELDER AFFAIRS 
2010 Annual Town Report 

Helping seniors to remain in their own homes or independent housing for as long as possible 
through the use of ancillary programs and services while maximizing the support network of 
their families and friends in our community, remains at the forefront of Elder Affairs' goals for 
2010 and beyond. With so many non-profit agencies and organizations suffering budget 
reductions this year, the demands on, and requests for, assistance from Cohasset Elder Affairs 
have dramatically increased. 

According to the Town Clerk's report, 1,823 people who are 60 years of age and older, reside in 
Cohasset. In 2010, nearly 67% of the seniors in Cohasset availed themselves of the more than 
40 different programs, services, and activities at our Senior Center. Our Outreach program 
confirmed a record number of seniors and their families seeking assistance regarding health 
insurance premiums, transitional housing issues, as well as benefit decreases, transportation 
needs, wellness and nutritional effects, and costs associated with home care options. 

The following information provides a snapshot of the services that were provided to seniors 
and their families throughout the year: 

2,302 congregate meals 

1,013 medical transportation rides 

4,209 grocery store, escort, congregate meal transportation rides 

3,023 requests for information fielded 

14 ongoing cultural and educational programs 

Expanded exercise, yoga, line dancing, and Tai Chi programs 

Procured a new medical transportation van 

Enhanced outreach networking with other agencies and organizations to increase and enhance 

visibility in the community 

Increased contact with frailest of our community during emergency situations 

Developed and distributed a new marketing brochure to highlight our programming and 

provide the case for support for construction of our new senior center 

Converted the monthly VISTA newsletter from Senior Citizen's Publishing Company to Liturgical 

Publications, to provide a more exciting, flexible, and readable format for our newsletter 

In 2010, more than 202 individuals faithfully and tirelessly volunteered 8,304 hours of their 
time to benefit seniors in our community. Transporting individuals to appointments, providing 
lunch on a regular basis, acting as receptionists for our office, performing wellness checks on 
frail older adults, leading activities, shopping for seniors, collating our mailings -there are 
numerous ways in which volunteers have provided critical assistance this year. With the 



149 



valuable support from these people, we were better able to fulfill our mission to serve elders' 
needs in our community. 

As we maintain our attention to existing programs and services, we are concurrently focusing 
time, effort, and energy on the future of Elder Affairs. In order to advance construction efforts 
on the new senior center which will enable Elder Affairs to more completely and efficiently 
address the needs of Cohasset seniors and their families, an Ad Hoc Committee was formed 
November, 2009, whose sole purpose it is to move the building project forward, and they are 
doing exactly that. To this end, a feasibility study was completed and presented to the Board of 
Selectmen and the public in October, and as a result, we have begun rigorous reviews before 
the many relevant Town commissions and committees. The capital fundraising component is 
being initiated, as well, to encourage citizen input from the entire community and beyond, to 
participate financially in this exciting Town project. 

Elder Affairs relies heavily on the leadership provided by our Board of Directors. Through their 
dedication of time and energy to our seniors, they have helped expand programming, assisted 
with budget preparation, and provided ongoing support for the Elder Affairs Director and staff 
in each of our endeavors. This past year, John Campbell moved from the President of the 
Friends of Elder Affairs to the position of Chair of the Elder Affairs Board of Directors. John has 
been instrumental in moving the building project forward, and helping to increase our visibility 
in the community. Because of this elevation of leadership within our organization, Karen 
Golden Oronte, already a valued and longtime member, was tapped to lead the Friends 
organization, the private, non-profit fundraising arm of our organization, and their creative 
efforts to augment the services provided at the senior center continued this year. In 2010, an 
increasing number of seniors participated in the Cohasset Cafe - an outreach strategy to 
broaden our base of participants, held weekly during the spring, summer, and fall seasons, at 
the Lightkeepers. The Friends also orchestrated the ever-popular Cohasset Cabaret, assembling 
performing talent from multiple communities, with the proceeds supporting our continued 
outreach effort to Cohasset seniors. In addition, they also supported several cultural events, 
including, "Songbirds of the Northeast", "Love Letters," and several craft instruction sessions. 

Throughout 2010 and beyond, Cohasset Elder Affairs remains committed to providing 
comprehensive programming and services to the seniors and their families in our community. 
We encourage input, suggestions for improvement, and town-wide participation in our journey 
to fulfill our mission. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Coral S. Grande 
Director, Elder Affairs

2010 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COHASSET HOUSING AUTHORITY 



The Cohasset Housing Authority is a public agency with a five mennber Board of Commissioners, 
four of whom stand for town election and the Governor appoints the remaining Commissioner. 
Commissioner Term Expires 

Helen C. Nothnagle 2015 

Ann C. Barrett 2014 

Ralph Perroncello 2012 

Susan Sardina 2011 

Open Seat Governor's Appointee 

The Cohasset Housing Authority has a staff of two: 
Catherine M. Luna, Execu-Tech Consultant 
Jill Rosano, Maintenance Supervisor 

According to their bylaws, the Board of Commissioners meets once a month and holds its 
annual meeting in June. 

Cohasset's subsidized housing inventory includes 64 state units of Chapter 667 Elderly/Disabled 
housing located at Harborview, 60 Elm Street and 12 units of Chapter 689 Special Needs 
housing located at 72, 74 and 76 Elm Street. The Department of Housing and Community 
Development subsidizes these 76 state units. Our annual subsidies are granted upon successful 
annual, semi-annual, and quarterly reviews of management and regulatory compliance. 

Eligibility standards for Harborview include a maximum allowable income of $45,100 for one 
person and $51,550 for two person households, the age for admission is 60. During the past 
year there have been nine apartment turnovers. At the present time there is a waiting list 
however, there are no Local Residents over the age of 60 on the list. Local residents under 
state law have a preference on our Wait List. "Local Preference" as defined by state law is "any 
applicant living and/or working in the Town". The Board of Commissioners recommends that 
application for subsidized housing at Harborview be made before the need becomes critical. 

Modernization grants for capital improvements are awarded by our funding source, the 
Department of Housing & Community Development. This past year the Department of Housing 
& Community Development started a new program. Formula Funding. Under this program the 
Cohasset Housing Authority was awarded $135,000 to make improvements to the site over the 
next Five years. 



151 



In past years, the Community Preservation Committee has given unprecedented consideration 
to the capital improvement needs of the Cohasset Housing Authority. Over 
$525,000 of Community Preservation Act funds have been expended at 60 Elm St since 2003 to 
upgrade apartments for safety and energy efficiency. Our deepest gratitude to the CPC for their 
thoughtful and generous consideration of our needs; to the Selectmen and the Advisory 
Committee for their encouraging support in placing this issue on the Town Meeting warrant; 
and to the citizens attending Town Meeting. Their support in approving the requests honors 
our senior citizens and enhances their quality of life here at Harborview. 

In 2006 we submitted a Condition Assessment Report (our primary vehicle for grants awarded 
for Capital Improvements) requesting siding, windows and doors for the building envelope and 
it was approved. At that time it was also discovered that we needed new roofs and gutters. The 
Department of Housing and Community Development 

approved the funding of $ 1,000,000.+ for these improvements along with the $400,000 in CPC 
funds awarded the Authority. This work is complete and we are eternally grateful to DHCD and 
the CPC for a practically new development. 

In 2007 we were awarded funding from the DHCD to improve the drainage, walkways, roadway 
and parking in the amount of $548,384.00. This work was completed in the spring of 2010. 

In 2010, the CPC awarded a total of $40,000 in order to install GFI's in the kitchens and 
bathrooms of all units and to replace the outside lighting. This project is partially complete and 
will be finished in 2011. 

The State's budget this year was level funded at the decreased limits of 2009, even though our 
utility and other expenses have increased. We continue to request emergency funding for our 
complex, as weather and time take their toll. \ 

We are extremely grateful to the Norfolk County Sheriff's Department for assistance in building 
maintenance when requested; to the Cohasset Public Works, Police and Fire Departments for 
their continued vigilance and generosity, insuring the safety of our residents; to the students 
from Notre Dame Academy, and the Girl Scout Troup 4870 for always remembering us. We 
thank you. 

The Board of Commissioners continues to pursue its mandate of providing affordable, safe, and 
secure housing and of reviewing and updating regulatory policies/procedures. It remains 
diligent in the research of opportunities to create affordable housing for those with the 
greatest need. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Helen Nothnagle, Chairman

Planning Board ~~ 2010 Annual Report 

The Cohasset Planning Board, under the authority granted by Massachusetts General Law, 
Chapter 41, Section 81A-GG (Planning and Subdivision Control Law), and Chapter 40A (the 
Zoning Act) is charged with the review of large homes, subdivisions and site plan review of 
various development projects. In addition to these duties the Board completed a number of 
additional planning tasks in 2010. 

The Board conducted public hearings on a number of zoning bylaw amendment articles: 

• For the June 14, 2010 Special Town Meeting, the Planning Board conducted a public hearing 
for one (1) zoning bylaw amendment warrant article: Article 3: Zoning Bylaw Amendment - 
Section 8.7.1 (adopted) 

• For the November 15, 2010 Special Town Meeting, the Planning Board conducted a public 
hearing for one (1) petitioned zoning bylaw amendment warrant article: Article 13: Zoning 
Bvlaw Amendment - Section 4.2 Permitted Uses (defeated) 

A significant amount of attention and review was focused on four (4) combined Special Permit 
and Site Plan Review filings: 

• CCI ENERGY LLC - WIND ENERGY CONVERSION FACILITY SPECIAL PERMIT AND SITE PLAN 
REVIEW APPLICATION for two proposed wind turbines at 215 CJC HWY, the site of the former 
Cohasset Landfill. Filed in August, 2008, public hearings and deliberations for this filing 
continued into 2009. In 2009, the Site Plan for this application was approved with conditions 
while the Special Permit Application failed to achieve the necessary four vote supermajority 
and was therefore denied. This denial was subsequently appealed by the applicant. The 
Board ended 2009 preparing for Remand Order public hearings for this application to begin 
in January, 2010. As a result of an Order of Remand the applicant modified its plans and 
submitted additional evidence and information. Public hearings and deliberations on 
Remand were conducted. The modified application on Remand for Special Permit was 
denied. 

• SOUTH COASTAL DEVELOPMENT GROUP, LLC - VILLAGE BUSINESS DISTRICT SPECIAL PERMIT 
AND SITE PLAN REVIEW APPLICATION for the construction of a 3-story, 26,300 sq. ft., 17 unit 
residential building on the 22,500 sq. ft. lot at 8 JAMES LANE. In December, 2009, the 
Planning Board voted unanimously to deny permits and approvals for this filing due to the 
applicant's lack of progress with the filing and because material submitted failed to meet the 
requirements of applicable bylaws. On February 17, 2010 a public hearing was held to 
consider South Coastal Development Group's request that the Planning Board reconsider its 
denial and instead, allow South Coastal Development to withdraw their application without 
prejudice. The request to be allowed to withdraw without prejudice was denied. 

• PILGRIM BANK - 40 SOUTH MAIN STREET - SITE PLAN REVIEW & VILLAGE BUSINESS 
DISCTRICT SPECIAL PERMIT APPLICATION. This combined site plan review and special permit 
application was for the renovation of the former Cohasset Hardware building to 
accommodate moving all bank operations to this site. Pilgrim Bank's goal was to retain as 
much of the character of the building as possible and to be consistent with the architecture 
of other buildings in the Village. Interior and exterior renovations included: replacing display 



155 



windows with smaller windows; raising the roof five (5) feet; removal of one entrance door 
on the So. Main St. side of the building; and, adding an alcove bump out on the Elm St. side 
of the building to accommodate an elevator for ADA access. The special permit was 
approved and, the site plan was approved with conditions. 

• CONSERVATION WIND LP - SITE PLAN REVIEW & WIND ENERGY CONVERSION FACILITY 
SPECIAL PERMIT APPLICATION for the construction of a commercial 1.8 MW wind turbine at 
Turkey Hill in Cohasset on land owned by the Trustees of Reservations. After several 
informal discussions in the summer and fall of 2010, public hearings for this application 
opened in November, 2010 and closed on December 15, 2010. Deliberations are scheduled 
to begin in January, 2011.

approval to the Land Court. 

Five (5) Large Home Review applications were reviewed via a public hearing process:

Norfolk County Registry of Deeds 

2010 Annual Report to the Town of Cohasset 

William P. O'Donnell, Register 

649 High Street, Dedham, Massachusetts 

The Registry of Deeds is the principal office for real property records in Norfolk County. The 
Registry receives and records hundreds of thousands of documents each year, and is a basic 
resource for title examiners, mortgage lenders, municipalities, homeowners, and others with a 
need for land record information. 

The Registry of Deeds has been a vital component of Norfolk County since 1793, the year 
Governor John Hancock signed legislation creating Norfolk County, also known as the County of 
Presidents -the birthplaces of John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John F. Kennedy and George 
H.W. Bush. 

The Registry operates under the supervision of the elected Register, William P. O'Donnell. In 
over two hundred years of continuous operation the Registry's objectives have remained the 
same: accuracy, reliability and accessibility for the residents and communities of Norfolk 
County. 

Improved technology, security and management of records and increased levels of customer 
service remain areas of major focus for the Registry of Deeds. Initiatives for 2010 include: 

• The Community Outreach Program continued to bring the Registry to many of the 
County's Town Halls and Senior Centers during 2010. Register O'Donnell and staff were 
at Cohasset Town Hall on June 16^*" and at Elder Affairs on December 1, 2010. 

• The Registry's Informational Seminar's offer both the real estate professional and the 
general public the opportunity to learn how to research the Registry's land records. 

• On January 20, 2010 the Registry processed its first electronic recording. Most 
documents can now be sent electronically to the Registry to be recorded. 

• The internet accessible indexing system has been expanded back to include references 
from as early as 1900. Remote access over the internet for complete printing of Registry 
documents is steadily expanding among a growing number of account holders. 

• The full service telephone and walk-in Customer Service & Copy Center provided 
thousands of Norfolk County residents with quality assistance in all areas of the Registry 
operations. The Customer Service & Copy Center can be reached at 781-461-6101. 

• The Registry's internet website www.norfolkdeeds.orR is regularly updated and 
enhanced to include recent news, trends, press information, and answers to frequently 
asked questions. 

• Our Community Programs, Suits for Success, and the Annual Holiday Food and Toys for 
Tots Drives have been successful through the generosity of the Registry employee's and 
residents of Norfolk County.

Overall Cohasset's real estate activity improved in 2010. In total, 2727 documents were 
recorded during the year representing a modest increase from 2009. The same slight grov\/th 
was seen with the average sale price of both commercial and residential property in Cohasset. 
Cohasset's average sale price in 2010 was $847,376. The number of land transfers in Cohasset 
for both consideration and nominal consideration increased by 14 % from last year with 215 
deeds recorded. Similarly, the total dollar amount of all sales in Cohasset increased positively 
by 21% with over $111 million in real estate sales. The number of foreclosures decreased 
slightly from the previous year and the amount of new mortgages recorded increased by 4%. In 
addition to the actual number of mortgages recorded, mortgage indebtedness grew to over 
$417 million in Cohasset, representing a 58% increase from 2008. This spike was due in part to 
historically low interest rates especially in the last quarter of 2010. Cohasset residents also took

2010 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

Wetland Protection Bylaw (Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Town of Cohasset) 

The Cohasset Conservations Commission's bi-monthly meetings were generally scheduled to 
review a number of applications, including 48 Notices of Intent (NOI) and 25 Requests for 
Determination of Applicability (RDA). The Cohasset Conservation Commission also conducted 
a large number of site visits throughout the town. 

One of the major projects of discussion was the "Cat Dam" Notice of Intent proposal filed by 
the Town of Cohasset. For a history of this project please view the Cohasset Mariner archives. 

In addition to enforcing the Wetland Protection Act, the Conservation Commission is also 
charged with permitting and enforcing the Town's Stormwater Bylaw. The following is a report 
from the Stormwater Agent Norfolk Ram LLC, Mark Bartlett. 

STORMWATER PERMIT / PROJECT REVIEW PROGRAM 

In calendar year 2010, we had a total of 23 "projects" which can be further broken down as 
follows: 

D 21 Stormwater Permit applications, 

n 2 Administrative Approval applications, and 

n 1 Special Assignment (Cook Estate - review of erosion control issues during 
construction). 

In Calendar Year 2010, the Town collected a total of $10,600 in administrative fees for permit 
applications which entered the Town's general fund. 

STORMWATER AGENT GENERAL SERVICES 

Norfolk Ram provided general services (i.e. non-permit review activity) through the year, 
services which cannot be charged against a specific permit application. 

in CY 2010, these services included work such as: 

• Provided monthly update reports to the Conservation Commission on the stormwater 
program. 



161

Agent review comments concerning site drainage issues and proposed mitigation 
for the affected stretch of Gammons Road. 

• Consulting review of two sites where developers were trying to avoid an 
Administrative Review permit.

ACCREDITATION 

Accreditation is a self initiated outside assessment of our police department by professionals to 
ensure compliance with standards by which to ensure the highest level of service for our 
residents. 

The department continues to work towards accreditation. To date, approximately 75% of the 
work has been completed for certification. Once certification is complete, accreditation will 
follow. All of the department's standard operating procedures (SOP's) are in the process of a 
total revamp. SOP's having to do with firearms licensing and evidence storage have already 
been changed. 

DEPARTMENT TRAINING 

• All police sergeants have now attended the state mandated (80) hour training program 
for police supervisors. 



169 



• A police officer has been certified as a CPR and 1'^ responder instructor. This will enable 
the department to conduct in-service medical training without having to send officers to 
the Plymouth Police Academy on overtime. Training will be accomplished at roll call 
during the officer's regular shift. 

• A 2"^^ firearms instructor has been trained and certified. In past years, Cohasset would 
hire a Scituate Police Officer on overtime to assist in training officers at the Boston 
Police firing range. Now, with a T"^ in-house trainer, Cohasset will have the ability to 
utilize the Plymouth County Sheriff's Department's mobile firearms training trailer. This 
trailer, which is over (40) feet in length, is a self contained firing range that can be used 
to supplement regular firearms training and reduce the need for officers to travel to 
distant firing ranges. 

• Several members of the department received updated "active shooter" training. This 
two-day course prepares personnel to deal with incidents such as school shootings and 
armed robberies. We are working towards all officers in the department having 
consistent training with regard to "active shooter" situations. 

• The state and local police departments continue to evaluate the feasibility of on-line 
based in-service training.

Sewer Commission 2010 Annual Report 

During 2010, the Little Harbor/ Atlantic Avenue and Deep Run/Rust Way sewer expansion 
projects progressed with the authorization of service connections and the commencement of 
private sewer service installation work. In addition, final paving operations continued with 
some delays attributed to allowing gas line upgrading and some miscellaneous drainage 
improvements to be completed first so as not to disturb new pavement. Completion of the 
remaining paving elements is anticipated for the Spring 2011 construction season. 

The treatment plant, with the new GE membranes, continued to perform very well and the 
High Flow emergency procedures were successfully tested during a spring storm. The Sewer 
Commission re-assessed its wastewater system operation strategy in 2010 and decided to 
competitively bid the Operational Services for the treatment plant. The primary reason was the 
need to get a more favorable operations contract for the town. United Water was chosen to 
replace Veolia, N.A. as the Sewer Department contract operator. 

The Sewer Commission also began a campaign to replace leaky sewer services through its 
Infiltration and Inflow (I/I) Elimination program. Several services around the Jacob's Meadow 
and Harbor area were video camera inspected to check pipe condition and degree and location 
of defects, especially in flood prone areas where wet weather impacts have been most 
pronounced. Four services were replaced in 2010 with pressure class pipe and at least a dozen 
more are anticipated for 2011. The new contract operator also has a new obligation in their 
contract to clean and video inspect main line piping, which would also commence in 2011, 
helping to detect additional I/I influences. 

The Sewer Commission issued betterments for the Little Harbor Sewer Expansion project in 
accordance with the Town Meeting project approvals. 100% of the construction costs 
associated with the expansion was allocated to residents at a cost of about $28,000 per 
Equivalent Dwelling Unit (EDU). By the end of 2010, the first full construction season after 
project completion, over 170 service connection applications had been filed with the 
Commission, representing about 35% of the anticipated new users. With two more 
construction seasons anticipated for sewer service construction (2011 and 2012) the 
connection process appears to be on track. The Commission anticipates having another Public 
Information mailing sent to residents in early 2011 to advise future users of the obligation to 
connect under the terms of the Second Amended Final Judgment with the State. To facilitate 
the connection process, the Sewer Commission has approved additional licensed Drain Layers 
for private residential connections. All Drain Layers were also trained by the E-One Grinder 
Pump manufacturer representatives. The Commission also established a manufacturer start-up 
program and town sewer service pressure testing program to ensure the quality of the 
installation for new users. 

A flow meter has been activated in the North Cohasset Sewer District to monitor flows in the 
main low pressure sewer connection to Hull. Current flow data continues to be tracked as the 
new Deep Run and Rust Way expansion services are being connected. Quarterly reports of flow 



174 



conditions began in 2010 and will continue to be issued to Hingham and Hull as the connection 
process continues. Our special thanks to Diane Hindley for her professional support and 
constantly cheerful demeanor in her ever-changing and growing job as our Administrative 
Assistant.

REPORT OF THE COHASSET HISTORICAL COMMISSION - 2010 



The Cohasset Historical Commission submits with pleasure the annual report of projects 
worked on during 2010 for the Town of Cohasset. 

"Local Historical Commissions are an important part of municipal government in 
Massachusetts. We are responsible for community-wide historic preservation planning. 
Historical Commissions advise elected officials and other boards on historic preservation issues, 
including zoning changes, the re-use of municipally owned historic buildings, and master 
planning or preservations of historic landscapes." (from Massachusetts Historical Commission 
by-laws summary sheet). This is different from the Cohasset Historical Society, a local non- 
profit society, whose mission is to preserve the history of Cohasset. 

National Register of Historic Places - The following properties and districts in Cohasset are 
listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Caleb Lothrop House, Summer Street (1976) 

Government Island Historic District, Lighthouse Lane (1994) 

Cohasset Common Historic District (1978, 1996) 

Josephine M Hagerty House, Atlantic Avenue (1997) 

Central Cemetery, Joy Place (2003) 

Bates Ship Chandlery/Maritime Museum, Elm Street (2003) 

Captain John Wilson House, Elm Street (2003) 

Pratt Building, South Main Street (2006) 
Many other properties in town are eligible to be listed on the National Register, either 
individually or as part of a Historical District. 

Inventory Forms - Over 2100 historical properties in Cohasset have been inventoried and forms 
placed on file with the Massachusetts Historical Commission. Properties from the late 1600's 
through the mid 1900's are listed. All inventory listings can be accessed online through the 
Massachusetts Historical Commission website and going to "Search the MACRIS Database." 
Copies of the inventory forms are also available at the Paul Pratt Library and at the Historical 
Society's Pratt Building. We give special thanks to David Wadsworth for his time and effort in 
keeping these files up to date. He is always finding more areas of town which can be 
inventoried. 



176 



"State or federally involved" projects - We receive communication concerning any state 
projects which may impact a historic area. We were asked to review the plans for the Pilgrim 
Bank's move to the old Cohasset Hardware Store. The Bank is very conscious about keeping the 
historic integrity of the downtown area and we are pleased with their plans. 

Local Involvement - 

1. First Parish House Steeple- The First Parish church was approached byT- 
Mobile to put an antenna into the spire of the church. As this is the focal point of the National 
Register Cohasset Common Historic District, we researched the issue and spoke with the 
Cohasset Common Historic District Commission, the Historical Society and other interested 
parties. We expressed our concerns on putting a vinyl spire onto a mid-1700 building and the 
impact it might have. The Massachusetts Historical Commission granted the church permission 
to make the change with certain provisions that the Cohasset Common Historic District 
Commission had asked for. 

2. Government Island National Register site. This year, 2010, celebrated the 150^^ 
anniversary of the lighting of the granite Minot's Ledge Lighthouse. The Historical Commission 
has a vested interest in Government Island and wants to keep this property historically correct. 
Thanks to the DPW, the area is cleared of weeds and mowed. We are working on signage for 
the site and at the Minot's Ledge Light Replica. We also are looking to develop signage to 
emphasize the historic significance of Beacon Rock. 

3. During the Cohasset Day, we sold "1-4-3" Minot Light T-shirts, sweatshirts, license 
plates and tote bags. We have inventory in both youth and adult sizes. We are revitalizing this 
project as the proceeds from these sales are used towards work on Historical Commission 
projects.. 

4. Meeting House Pond - The Commission met with the proponents for the restoration of the 
Meeting House Pond, which is part of the Cohasset Common National Historic District., to go over 
the signage which will be at the site. 

5. Community Preservation Committee - A portion of the CPA funds are allocated for 
historic preservation and a member of our Commission sits on the Community Preservation 
Committee. Although it is not mandated that the Historical Commission review proposals 
before they go to the CPC, we feel strongly that in order to help maintain the historic integrity 
of this town, we need to be involved. 



177 



As the town goes forward, Cohasset Historical Commission feels strongly that we need to be 
involved with the long-range planning of our very historic and picturesque town. In order to 
look and plan for the future it is necessary to study the past and know where we are coming 
from. 

We thank the various town departments and committees that have helped and supported our 
goals. The Commission meets each month except during July and August. Meeting schedules 
are posted on at Town Clerk's office at Town Hall. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Rebecca Bates-McArthur, Chairman 
David Wadsworth, Secretary 
Marilyn Morrison

2010 Report for the Committee on Town History 
A History- 

By vote of town meeting in the midl990's, a committee was established to publish the town's 
third narrative history spanning the time frame from 1950 to 2000. 

This history titled Narrative History ofCohasset Volume III by Jacqueline Dormitzer was 
published in 2001. 

Because of the town's support of the project and town subsidies, the committee went on to 
republish the previous out-of-print narrative histories, two Dormitzer anthologies, and a 
Dormitzer guide book of the town-a total of six titles. 

A sub-committee was also formed to provide the Cohasset schools with historical time lines, a 
curriculum, and enlarged maps of the town. 

The books are sold at wholesale prices to the Cohasset Historical Society, Buttonwood Books, 
and are available at the clerk's office. The guide book is available at Barnes and Noble in 
Hingham and Fleming's in Cohasset. 

All expenditures are covered by our book account as promised to the past boards of selectmen. 
Our committee does not have to come before town meeting for additional subsidies in that the 
revenues from sales will be used to reprint whichever title needs reprinting. The five titles 
published after Volume III was printed were paid for from the sales we generated as well as the 
remainder of the original subsidy. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Jim Hamilton, Chair, Committee on Town History

Annual Report of the Paul Pratt Memorial Library, 2010 

The activities at the Paul Pratt Memorial Library continued to grow and change with the times 
in FY2010. We circulated over 139,000 items last year, 6% of which were checked out by 
patrons using our self-checkout station. We expanded our resources to include more access to 
electronic sources, many of which are available from our web site. Our public computer 
terminals are more popular than ever (23,556 sessions), and the hits on our website 
(cohassetlibrary.org) reached 2.13 million, up 36% in the past year. 

The Children's Program, under the leadership of Children's Librarian Sharon Moody, continues 
to attract large numbers; attendance at the 135 story hours, programs and reading groups was 
up 9% from last year. For adults, we sponsored 53 events, administered by Reference Librarian 
Gayle Walsh, including films, author talks and book discussion groups. The Friends of the 
Cohasset Library, chaired by Carolyn Coffey, funded and assisted in staffing most of these 
efforts, plus those related to our fourth town wide reading program, "Cohasset Reads 
Together." The Friends also funded the second season of the very successful weekly homework 
center (helping almost 700 students), the library's senior citizen outreach and museum passes. 
They also continue to maintain the beautiful garden that they planted in the island of the 
parking lot. 

The Cohasset Library Trust, Inc., established to manage and grow the library's endowment, 
added almost $100,000 this year. This included $30,000 of unsolicited gifts and the profit on a 
sold-out evening with author Tracy Kidder, celebrating the 2009 gift from the South Shore 
Music Circus. The endowment weathered the financial downturn in excellent shape, due in part 
to timely changes in portfolio allocations. At the annual meeting in May, Sarah Pease was 
elected the new president. 

We were pleased to receive several grants this year. The Social Service League awarded the 
library $10,000 for its FY2011 Next Chapter program, which will teach participants how to use 
technology for work, research, marketing, communication and social networking. The library 
continues to benefit from the generosity of the South Shore Music Circus. In FY2010, SSMC 
gave the library $5,000 to be put toward the purchase of a second self-checkout station for the 
Children's Room. The Net Lender grant was one again awarded to our library, because we 
loaned more materials than we borrowed. This will be the last of these grants, due to drastic 
cuts in the Commonwealth's budget. 

While we were forced to close on Sundays due to budget constraints, our Director and staff 
continue to provide an environment that promotes reading, learning and community activities 
six days a week. We thank the town and our loyal patrons for their support.

Report of the Recreation Commission 

It is with distinct pleasure that we report the 2010 activities of the Recreation Commission to 
residents. 

On July 1^\ 2010, Jenna McCarthy was hired to replace Michael J. Barra by Town Manager 
William Griffin as the Department's Recreation Assistant. 

The commission and department appreciated and applauded the efforts of Mike in his short 
time here. His technology talents helped transform the department and his supervisory skills 
made the Summer Xtreme program a model program in the South Shore. 

The department was fortunate to be able to employ Jenna to replace Mike as she brings with 
her years of experience working for our neighbor, Scituate Recreation. Jenna furthermore 
brings a vast knowledge of the area and very strong office technical skills that have greatly 
enhanced the department. 

We offer a fully functional website, ( www.cohassetrec.com ) that allows on-line registrations 
which are of benefit to all participants who may register or need to find information on all of 
our programs from home, anytime night or day. From July 1^* 2009, thru June 30, 2010, 
$116,165.00 was transacted via on-line 'credit card' registrations. Based on greater familiarity 
of residents relative to online registrations, we would anticipate the dollar amount to grow 
each year. 

We conducted our second annual Recreation Fair on Sunday, March 21, 2010. The Recreation 
Fair brings together under one roof, a variety of public and private recreational opportunities 
and services that are available to Cohasset residents and allows residents to speak directly to 
the providers of those services. Further, residents are able to register that day for summer 
recreation programs that the department will offer. The Massachusetts Recreation and Park 
Association honored the Cohasset Recreation Department with the Community Outreach 
Award for our Recreation Fair. The award is given for a "program over and above regular 
programming that demonstrates a benefit to the community". The 3'^*^ Annual Recreation Fair 
will be held on Sunday, March 20*^ 2011 at the Deer Hill School. 

The old Teen Garage is now a fully programmed Recreation Center from which a multitude of 
Recreation Department programs are conducted on a year round basis. Dances and private 
parties continue to be held at the Center and rental of the facility remains available. 

The South Shore Vocational Technical High School project to replace the antiquated heating 
system with a full HVAC system was finished and allows us to save money, offer more programs 
at the site and saved the town $10,000 in labor. Special thanks to Ken Thayer, Cohasset 
Representative to the SSVT School Committee, Scott Anderson from Anderson Fuel, Howie 
Mekler from Cohasset Plumbing and Heating, James Clark Electric, Glenn Pratt from Suburban 
Contract Cleaning and of course the teachers and students from South Shore Vocational High 
School. 



181 



Recreation is a very dynamic discipline and meeting the ever changing needs of residents of all 
ages, a challenge. To this end, we offered a number of new services this year including Body 
Conditioning programs, Strong Kids, Hershey Track and Field Day, dance classes, guitar lessons, 
theater, and lego programs to go along with our popular Summer Xtreme and Playground 
Program, trips to Red Sox games. New York City trips, piano lessons, SAT instruction, CPR 
classes, and expanded Coast Guard Boating Safety programs and babysitting training. 

Our summer concerts on the common series continued to grow this summer and via the 
continuing generosity of the South Shore Playhouse Associates and in part from the Cohasset 
Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a 
state agency, we were able to offer 7 concerts during the summer of 2010. Concerts performed 
by a variety of bands are on Thursday nights after the Farmer's Market and we are also 
indebted to the following residents and organizations for their contributions to the concert 
series: Jim Richardson of MKR Building Solutions, Golden Living Center, Farmers Market, and 
the McMorris Family. 

November was a busy month for the Department as we hosted the Department's second 
annual Used Sports Sale and cosponsored the Thanks-for-giving road race. The Used Sports 
Sale gave residents the chance to recycle used equipment and or purchase items such as skates 
and skis. The proceeds benefited the Recreation Center. In conjunction with the Clark 
Chatterton Memorial Fund Committee the Department organized the Thanksgiving Morning 5 k 
Road Race for the second year. 360 runners registered for the race and it was a highly 
successful run with over 100 more runners from 2009. Special thanks go out to our sponsors 
and volunteers. 

While Department budget restrictions continue and have become even more curtailing, we are 
utilizing our Revolving Account Fund for 100% Self-Supporting services to the maximum. Use of 
this Fund not only accounts for all the cost of providing a particular program, but also 
contributes a portion of revenue back to the tax payers via deposits in the General Fund of the 
Town. 

During Fiscal Year 2010, starting July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2010 the Recreation Commission 
produced for the General Fund $92,479.55. Over $12,000.00 was produced for use by the 
Commission via grants and matching grant funds and donations. Concurrently, over $85,000.00 
was transacted via Revolving Account Funds for 100% Self-Supporting programs via fees 
charged participants for a variety of services. Approximately another $120,000.00 was 
transacted via other and direct self-supporting financial systems during F.Y. 2010, manifesting 
over $300,000.00 of recreational services to residents. These figures do not include the 
thousands of man-hours that are annually donated by hundreds of residents, in support of a 
variety of program operations. 



182 



Municipal recreation is for the benefit of all residents and we continue to direct our efforts 
towards assurance of equal access and opportunity to the entire Community. To this end, a 
specific and calculated portion of revenue was not collected this year from residents who were 
temporarily unable to pay full fee charges for services. We are indebted to the Cohasset Social 
Service League for their generous donation and underwriting the fees for those less fortunate. 

Programming represents only one aspect of the responsibilities, duties, and functions as 
prescribed and conferred upon the Recreation Commission by both Massachusetts General 
Laws and By-Laws of the Town. Continuing efforts are focused upon field permitting, 
scheduling, upgrading and renovating existing outdoor recreational facilities under jurisdiction 
of the Commission. Often times these undertakings are coordinated via a lending of both 
public and privately solicited resources and efforts, easing taxpayers' burden. 

The seven member, elected board of the Recreation Commissioner's, volunteer their services to 
the Town and Department meeting regularly in order to discuss a wide-spectrum of topics 
relative to the leisure needs and pursuits of all residents. Further, the Commissioner's establish 
policy, and provide Departmental direction, support, and assistance. Each meeting is publicly 
posted and residents are cordially invited to attend and participate in any meeting. Essential to 
our proper function, and absolutely vital towards success, is the ability to remain responsive to 
the dynamic Community needs. We consider your input and feedback our most important 
source of guidance. 

The Recreation Commission wishes to acknowledge gratitude to the many individuals, civic and 
business organizations, school and sport's groups. Town Boards, Committees and Departments 
who have lent their support and assistance in our efforts to best serve the recreational and 
leisure needs of residents of all ages. While too numerous to mention each by name, none are 
forgotten and all are sincerely appreciated and thanked. 

Respectfully yours,

SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL VOCATIONAL TECHNICAL SCHOOL DISTRICT 

2010 COHASSET TOWN REPORT 

During the 2010 year, the students of the South Shore Regional Vocational Technical School 
continue to prosper as productive citizens in their community upon graduation. Over the past 
fifty years. South Shore students have been known for their keen sense of and attitude towards 
work ethics. As changing demands continue to be placed before our students, it is the duty of 
South Shore to provide the best possible vocational education to our students. 

On June 11, 2010, 2 graduates from Cohasset received diplomas and shop certificates at the 
South Shore Music Circus. The following students graduated: 
Todd Emanuello John Plante 

Currently, students from the Town of Cohasset are scheduled to graduate on June 10, 2011.

Annual Town Report 

2010 

Cohasset Public Schools 

"Continuing the Commitment to Excellence" 



I am pleased to present to you the Annual Town Report for 2010 for the Cohasset Public 
Schools. 

We continue to set high standards to better prepare students to take their place in an ever 
changing global economy. Some of the accomplishments of 2010 include: 

Cohasset High School ranked 17 out of the 50 best public high schools according to 

Boston Magazine this past year. 

41 Students at Cohasset High School last year earned the College Board's Advanced 

Placement Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on Advanced 

Placement exams. 

2 New Foreign Language Labs were installed at the Cohasset Middle School and High 

School, through the generosity of the Cohasset Education Foundation (CEF). 

Virtual High School continues to be offered, increasing elective offerings to our 

students, without increasing staff. 2011-2012 will be our 5*^ year. 

District wide recycle program was introduced. In partnership with Waste Management, 

this implemented "single stream" recycling technology. 

The "Intermediate Learning Center" at Deer Hill School continues to serve our Special 

Education students in district. 

Laptops were replaced in portable electronic art lab at the High School. 

Thin Client PC's (for Deer Hill and Middle School Instruction Labs) were installed. Thin 

Client PC's run off 1 main PC, thereby cutting costs dramatically. 

Special Education in out of district tuition was offset by $200,522 as a result of FYll 

circuit breaker reimbursement. 

Girl's hockey came to Cohasset in partnership with Hanover Public Schools. 

Global competence program that identifies essential skills for our increasing global 

society was implemented. 

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Lab for Joseph Osgood School was 

opened through the generosity of the Cohasset PSO. 

Bullying Prevention Policy/Plan was designed and implemented. 

Cohasset Athletic Hall of Fame was initiated to recognize and honor former student 

athletes, coaches, teams for their outstanding accomplishments and contributions to 

the Cohasset High School Athletic Program. 

African Percussion instruments and Orff instruments purchased for Deer Hill School 

music program; through the generosity of the Cohasset Education Foundation (CEF). 



185 



The school department is most appreciative of the continued fiscal support of the Cohasset 
community especially the generous support of PSO and CEF to expand the use of technology in 
the district. As the demand for 21^^ century skills increases for our graduates, community 
support is needed more than ever. Our children are the future of our community. We hope to 
continue to partner with the Cohasset community to meet the educational needs of the 
Cohasset school community as we accomplish our mission together to "continue the 
commitment to excellence."

Annual Town Report 

2010 
Joseph Osgood School 

The year 2010 was a year of exciting initiatives, improved student performance, and continued 
professional growth for Osgood faculty and staff. Student enrollment of 429 last year increased 
to 444 for the 2010-2011 school year, and we were able to maintain level staffing and services. 
Our School Improvement Plan, developed by the Osgood School Council, included goals that 
reflect the district mission, "Continuing the Commitment to Excellence." Goals also reflected our 
school mission: 

The Joseph Osgood School is committed to developing socially and academically 
confident individuals by creating a learning environment which encompasses a 
research-based curriculum and district wide educational goals. Dedicated teachers, 
well-trained staff, and supportive parents foster good citizenship, ethical and 
responsible behavior, and global awareness. 

In accordance with our mission, a strong partnership between home and school that included 
the support of our Parent School Organization (PSO) and Cohasset Education Foundation (CEF), 
contributed to the achievement of school goals and marked school improvement. One of our 
greatest accomplishments was the creation of a STEM Lab (Science, Technology, Engineering, 
Math) for our primary school students. The PSO raised more than $20,000 to increase 
opportunities for hands-on learning experiences utilizing technology. The Osgood lab is 
equipped with a SMART Board, SMART Table, document camera, digital microscope, and 
multiple tools to develop scientific attitudes and skills. Research tells us that at a very young 
age, students can develop attitudes and skills that will guide them through future educational 
experiences that require problem solving and critical thinking. Students have enjoyed weekly 
visits to the STEM Lab where they have participated in engaging, challenging, and highly 
motivating activities. Many of our parents have been invited to support learning in the lab by 
helping teachers to facilitate learning stations. 

Students still enjoy the benefits of our computer lab that was donated by the CEF. In addition to 
accessing online tools that support curriculum programs, students enjoyed independent and 
group projects that developed beginning research skills. All students in grades one and two 
created PowerPoint presentations for parents that integrated content knowledge with 
technology in the areas of science and social studies. In the classroom, teachers integrated 
technology using Web 2.0 tools for engaging and challenging students and for communicating, 
creating, and collaborating. 

Other technology tools used in the lab and classrooms to enhance curriculum included 
Everyday Math online games, Scott Foresman assessments and phonemic awareness games 
and activities, Scott Foresman Leveled Readers, Achieve Now PSP adventures, and the Safari 
Montage video library. 



187 



Teachers continued to develop strategies for integrating 21^^ century skills in classroom 
practices through professional development activities. Activities focused on Global Education, 
Life Science, Physical Science, Earth Science, Space, and Technology and Engineering. Our grade 
two team participated in a year-long math course. Achieving Math Power, and the 6 + 1 Traits 
of Writing Program was another area of focus along with Leadership/Assessment Team Data 
Analysis and Standards-Based Progress Report Implementation. A revised Bullying Policy and 
Prevention and 

Intervention Plan were developed thanks to the collaboration of the school community, and all 
school staff participated in Bullying Prevention and Intervention Training in accordance with the 
new legislation. Additionally, Osgood staff members worked towards aligning Second Step 
Curriculum lessons with the new plan. 

The Osgood preschool and kindergarten programs having been working towards NAEYC 
(National Association for the Education of Young Children) Accreditation, which is a 
comprehensive improvement process that focuses on program quality. The preschool and 
kindergarten teams met regularly throughout the year to document evidence of how each of 10 
program standards and more than 400 criteria are met. Teachers will demonstrate to a visiting 
NAEYC team in the spring of 2011 policies, procedures, and practices in the following areas: 
Designing Enriched Learning Experiences, Creating Caring Communities for Learning, Using 
time, Grouping, and Routines to Achieve Learning Goals, Responding to Children's Interests and 
Needs, Making Learning Meaningful for All Children, and Using Instruction to Deepen Children's 
Understanding and Build their Skills and Knowledge. The Accreditation Process will assist our 
school team in identifying our program's areas of strengths and needs for continuous 
improvement. 

The year brought significant overall improvement in Grade 2 Stanford Achievement Test scores, 
especially in the areas of Language and Math. We have also noted significant improvement in 
DIBELS scores. The DIBELS screening assesses core components of early reading such as 
Phonemic Awareness, the Alphabetic Principle, and Accuracy and Fluency. For example, in 
2007, 68% of kindergartners met the end-of-year benchmark in Phoneme Segmentation 
Fluency and in 2010, 98% of kindergartners met the end-of-year benchmark. In grade one, for 
the same measure of phonemic awareness, 93% of students met the end-of year benchmark in 
2007, and 100% met the benchmark in 2010. Improving Oral Reading Fluency in Grade 2 has 
been a goal and a focus of instruction. In 2007, 75% of second graders met the end-of-year 
benchmark in Oral Reading Fluency, and in 2010, 89% of second graders met the benchmark. 

The Osgood School continued to enjoy traditional school events that brought families together 
and fostered positive home, school, and community relationships. Make a Difference Day, Book 
Fairs, the Holiday Concert, Science and Math Night, May Arts Night, the Arbor Day Concert, and 
Snapper Sneaker Day were highlights of the school year and were very successful thanks to the 
support and collaboration of staff and parents. Curriculum enrichment activities were also 
enjoyed by all thanks to the fundraising efforts of the PSO. Parents and teachers worked 
together to plan programs that enhanced the curriculum and provided extended learning 



188 



opportunities for students. Curriculum enrichment included activities on our own Nature Trail 
where students studied plants and animal habitats with an Audubon naturalist. 

We are grateful to Superintendent Dr. Denise Walsh, members of the School Committee, our 
parents, and members of the community at large for their continued support of our school and 
our programs. This support has resulted in measurable school improvement and meaningful 
learning experiences for all!

Annual Town Report 

2010 

Deer Hill School 



As the year 2011 begins, members of the Deer Hill community look forward to another year of 
academic engagement, rigor, and relevance, as well as strengthened ties to our community. 
Our October enrollment, as of October 1, 2010, was 381 students, an increase of just 2 students 
from the October report from 2009. As of January, 2011, class sizes range from 22 to 25 
students, with our largest cohort being our fourth grade, with 149 students. 

In June, Ms. Amelia Roche, third grade teacher, returned to her native New Jersey to rejoin her 
family. In September, we welcomed Mrs. Maika Massari to the third grade team. We also 
welcomed Mrs. Danielle Kent as our new special education teacher in the fourth grade. Mrs. 
Karen Murphy, our school nurse, retired in June after 23 years of dedicated service. We were 
fortunate to welcome Mrs. Mary Mastromarino to take her place. In December of 2010 we 
were heartbroken when Mrs. Jacky Kurtz, our highly esteemed instructional aide and dear 
friend, passed away after her battle with cancer. 

With the support of our school community, teaching and support staff at Deer Hill School have 
enjoyed continuing our commitment to excellence through improved rigor, relevance, and 
relationships. Our English Language Arts program has benefited from a second year of 
implementation of coordinated, research based practices in word study - namely vocabulary 
and spelling. We had a great deal of fun participating in the Annual Readathon, sponsored by 
our Deer Hill PSO. Every classroom received the book "Give a Goat" by Jan West Schrock, 
courtesy of the Friends of the Cohasset Library, the theme of which was consistent with the 
Cohasset Reads Together theme for 2010 - demonstrating compassion and community service. 
Our mathematics program has been enhanced by a new supplementary program for our fifth 
graders entitled "Hands on Equations." This program effectively demystifies the process of 
balancing and reducing equations that include variables - a highly challenging task for many of 
our 5^ graders! 

Our assessment programs have given us valuable information regarding the academic 
achievement of our students. As a district, we met our Adequate Yearly Progress ("AYP") for 
spring, 2010, and, as a school, our aggregate population achieved our AYP target. (Our special 
education subgroup did not make AYP this year.) In 2010, once again Deer Hill MCAS scores 
were above state average in all three grade levels in all content areas. In grade three, 2010 
scores reported 80% in Above Proficient or Proficient in Reading and in Mathematics, 89% were 
either Advanced or Proficient. In grade four, 74% of students scored in the Advanced or 
Proficient range and 59% of the students scored in either Advanced or Proficient in 
Mathematics. In grade five, 78% of students scored in the Advanced or Proficient category in 
ELA, 78% in Mathematics, and 79% in Science and Technology. These scores help us to 
understand the relative strengths and weaknesses of our instructional programs, while 
providing information regarding individual student growth profiles. 



190 



An important accomplishment this year was the district-wide Bullying Prevention Plan and 
Policy. These documents, based on our existing bullying prevention plan and policy, clearly 
delineate our school's process for responding to bullying and educating our students to prevent 
it from happening in the first place. The plan was developed in the fall of 2010 with input from 
teachers, counselors, administrators, and the district's legal counsel. We are currently in our 
fourth year of implementing the Steps to Respect Bullying Prevention Curriculum which builds 
on the Second Step Pro-Social Skills curriculum implemented for grades K - 2 at the Osgood 
School. Our Plan and Policy was approved by the Cohasset School Committee in December, 
2010, and was submitted on schedule to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and 
Secondary Education. 

Our EMC^ program continues and seems to get better every year. This schoolwide enrichment 
model, based on the research surrounding gifted and talented education, allows all students to 
select an area of enrichment and engage in interest based inquiry for one period a week, often 
in multigrade classes. Popular new classes this year included the Stock Market Game, 
Documentary, Fantasy Football Teams, Chess, and Cooking. Our Character Education Program 
has emphasized the character traits of Self-Reliance, Perseverance, Empathy, and Respect this 
year. 

We are looking forward to upgrading our technology! Thanks to very generous grand funding 
from the Cohasset Education Foundation, ("CEF"), the Deer Hill School will acquire a set of LED 
computer "notebooks" that will act as a mobile computer lab! 

Deer Hill students benefited greatly again this year from a wide variety of enrichment 
programs, sponsored by the Deer Hill Parent Student Organization ("PSO"). David Zucker 
entertained all students with "Poetry in Motion", Tom Waihe of Techsplorations presented the 
scientific phenomenon of electricity to the whole school and then followed up with individual 
workshops for each 5^^ grade class. The Museum of Science brought its traveling Star Lab to 
our very own gymnasium! Ben Franklin and Abigail Adams stopped by for a visit and 
discussion; the Boston Museum of Science presented its engaging program entitled Wind, 
Weather, and Temperature. Astronaut and U.S. Navy Captain Steven Bowen, who grew up in 



191 



Cohasset, visited our school on December 7*^ to present a slide show of the space 
shuttle and the voyage that he and other astronauts made to the International Space 
Center in May of 2010. (Our students were so impressed with Captain Bowen and 
learned so much about the space program.) Valerie Tutson, a well known story teller, 
visited our fourth grade once again to share in a highly engaging way her stories from 
around the world, with an emphasis on African traditions. Our students saw a life-size 
version of the Tanglewood Marionettes - Perseus and Medusa -just as they were 
completing their unit on Mythology. Finally, our students had the opportunity to see a 
program from the Museum of Science entitled "Animal Adaptations" and a program 
from Bay Colony Educators entitled "Life in Colonial America." All of these programs 
have been carefully researched by teachers and parents for their quality of presentation 
as well as their connection to our curriculum. 

We continued to enjoy our favorite traditions -the Favorites Arts Night, Spring and 
Winter Concerts, 5^^ grade Promotion Ceremony, Veteran's Day Ceremony, and the 
Annual Field Day, to name a few. We are excited to begin a new tradition this month - 
an assembly to honor our commitment to a bully-free environment - "Deer Hill Cares" - 
with a special tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Finally, our courtyard was given a face lift this fall by the Junior Gardeners, under the 
leadership of the Cohasset Community Garden Club. The right side was weeded and 
new plants were planted under the apple tree. The left side was cleaned out and bulbs 
were planted for the spring. In the place where the birch tree was before it had to come 
down is a newly planted Stellar Pink Rutgers Dogwood tree, donated by Chris Kennedy 
of Kennedy's Country Gardens in Scituate! Every Junior Gardener had a hand in the 
planting of this beautiful tree, which will bloom in mid-summer, followed by dark green 
leaves in the summer, and stunning burgundy foliage in the fall. On School Spirit Day in 
October, many students and parents volunteered to help plant new daffodils along the 
front driveway - we now have over 80 daffodils planted in this area! 
Looking forward, we are reminded of our most important task - to ensure that our 
students are well on their way to becoming successful graduates - whether it means 
embarking on their careers or their college education or both. We are committed to 
making sure that, as our students get older, their choices increase in number, their 
horizons grow bigger, their interest grows deeper, and they are empowered to take 
advantage of all opportunities available to them in the 21^^ century. On behalf of the 
students and staff of Deer Hill School, we are grateful to our school community and the 
Town of Cohasset for supporting us in this important task.

Annual Town Report 

2010 

Cohasset Middle-High School 

Cohasset Middle-High School experienced a number of accomplishments in 
2010. The accomplishments included academic successes for our students, as well as 
high levels of participation and achievement in co-curricular activities, which led to a top 
20 ranking of Massachusetts High Schools by Boston Magazine. The staff, however, 
continued to focus on curriculum review and renewal that included an emphasis on the 
21^^ century skills necessary for our students to remain competitive, data analysis for 
improved student achievement, professional development to better meet the academic 
needs of all students, and worked to implement a school-wide advisory program to 
further support students' personal growth and development. 

Throughout 2010, our students continued to distinguish themselves 
academically. Cohasset High School was recognized as one of the top performers in the 
state for the percentage of students who scored advanced or proficient on our grade 10 
MCAS scores for English language arts and mathematics. CHS was further recognized as 
a top performer in the state and the nation for the number of students who participated 
in Advanced Placement (AP) courses. The school offered credit in ten different 
Advanced Placement electives, plus two additional courses offered through our 
partnership with Virtual High School, which enabled an AP enrollment of 133 students 
taking 226 tests in May of 2010. Results on these AP exams demonstrate the 
preparation and success of the students who participated with 174 of the exams 
(approximately 78%) were graded to be eligible for college credit. 

All 90 members of the Class of 2010 earned competency determinations 
according to Department of Education standards, with 64 students recognized as eligible 
for Stanley Z. Koplik Certificate of Mastery Award, and 25 members of the class were 
recognized as John and Abigail Adams Scholarship Award recipients. Ten members of 
the graduating class were recognized as Distinguished Scholars based on the highly 
competitive nationally recognized Advanced Placement test results, and were joined by 
another 31 students in grades 11 and 12 who earned AP Scholar or AP Scholar with 
Honor status. Thirty six graduates were members of the National Honor Society. Our 
SAT scores remained highly competitive, supporting 94% of the graduating class who 
enrolled in various public and private four-year colleges and another 4% who chose to 
attend two-year college or preparatory school for a total of 98% of the Class of 2010 
continuing to further their education in some capacity. 



193 



Our students distinguished themselves through their participation in a number 
of our extra-curricular activities as well, including athletics, band, chorus, drama, 
journalism, student council, and community service. Our programs continued to excel 
because of the commitment, dedication, and hard work of our students. Some 
examples of this include student artwork displayed in May at the South Shore Art 
Center, as well as the prestigious Boston Globe Scholastic Art awards recognition to 
Steven Maher, Carii Haggerty, Emily Bertovich, and Alexandra Leger. Additionally, Zoe 
Meyers, Alexandra Oremus and Maura Donohue received a Silver Key for their artwork. 
Reed Westcott and Alexandra Leger were selected as winners to the state-wide Census 
Poster Design Contest. The High School band and chorus traveled to Philadelphia in 
May and earned superior and excellent ratings from college and professional judges for 
their performance. It is a pleasure to note the success of our students as semi-finalists 
at the Massachusetts High School Drama Guild Festival, with their rendition of Check 
Please featuring Emily Baumgarten, Zoe Whilton, Bobby Nahill, Greta Shwachman, Tara 
Goodwin, Sean MacCarthy, Mark Seraikas, Ian Porter, Billy Mack, Kevin Mack, Natalie 
Dignam, and Anya Gruber, and the successful production of our school musical The Wiz 
featuring Meghan Burke as Dorothy. 

Athletically, in the winter 2010 season the wrestling and girls' basketball teams 
qualified for post season tournament play. Jack Murphy surpassed 100 wins in his high 
school career, and was a Div. Ill state finalist in wrestling. Cohasset High School won its 
third straight league title and second Division IV State Championship in three years in 
girls' Basketball. In the spring the boys' and girls' lacrosse teams, boys' and girls' tennis 
and the baseball team qualified for post season play. Boys' tennis, baseball, and 
lacrosse won South Shore league titles. Tori Lehr won an individual Div. IV state title in 
track and field. The boys' lacrosse team earned their third state championship title in 5 
years, and on the same evening in June, the baseball team won their state title for the 
first time. That meant three state championship teams for Cohasset High School in a 
single year. This past fall our boys' and girls' soccer teams and our field hockey and golf

In June the school bell rang for the last time for Betty Cisneros and Peggy Lee, 
who after many years of distinguished service to the Cohasset community chose to 
retire and enter a new and exciting stage of life. As a result, staffing changes were made 
throughout the summer in preparation for the new school year including 8 new teachers 
who come to us with outstanding skills. These new staff members join a faculty that 
numbers 65 teachers and 2 assistant principals to serve the student population at the 
Middle-High School where there are currently 347 students in the Middle School and a 
High School with 370 on its roster. 

Teachers at Cohasset Middle-High School in 2010 continued to seek 
opportunities for personal and professional growth beyond the classroom. Staff 
members have taken on opportunities for professional growth in areas such as co- 
teaching, curriculum review and revisions, school safety, bully prevention education, 
and growth of the Peer Leadership program. Looking forward, we will explore further 
development and implementation of a Global Education Recognition Program, using 
data analysis to promote further student achievement beyond proficiency, the 
development of school-wide academic, civic and social expectations, the expansion of 
technology as a means to enhance instruction and student achievement, and continued 
incorporation of 21^^ century content and skills necessary for our students to be 
successful beyond high school. 

Respectfully Submitted 
Joel Antolini, Principal 
Cohasset Middle-High School

• Portable radio (extra batteries) 

• WATD, 95.9 FM, Marshfield, MA 
or Cable Channel 10 for local 
news. 

• Three (3) day supply of food and 
water

FAMILY DISASTER PLAN 

Discuss the types of hazards that could affect your family. Know your homes vulnerability to 

storm surge, flooding or wind. 

Locate a safe room or the safest areas in your home for each hurricane hazard. In certain 

circumstances the safest areas may not be your home but within your community. 

Determine escape routes from your house and places to meet. These shotold be measured in tens 

of miles, rather than hundreds of miles. 

Have out-of-state friend as a family contact, so all of your family members have a single point of 

contact. 

Make a plan now for what to do with your pets if you need to evacuate. 

Post emergency telephone numbers by your phones and make sure your children know how and 

when to call 911. 

Stock non-perishable emergency supplies and a disaster supply kit.
