Motion for Recommendation to the Town Council re: the proposed ordinance
Isaac Mass presented his argument for a proposed public safety ordinance re: needle exchange. He proposed certain restrictions and fines for non licensees to do exchanges of needles. There were several public comments on why this would hinder people from exchanging needles which would increase HIV etc. Mass believes more Pharmacies will have Sharp containers. Also, this ordinance will prohibit unregulated needle exchanges where no information is provided.
There were several people voicing their concerns of putting restrictions on the needle exchange. They wanted the board to reject it
Proposed Needle Exchange Ordinance
The Board decided not to vote on Isaac Mass' proposed needle exchange ordinance.
Sofia Kolinski appeared before the board on behalf of Shayla Caldwell. Sofia was here to ask for a variance request for Shayla. Shayla has been certified to do microblading for eyebrows for a little less than one year and she has performed this on 48 people. MA rules are you need to work for someone doing microblading for one year and perform on 50 people.
After consideration, the Board decided to grant variance and allow Shayla to work in MA with the stipulation of passing both inspections.
Probationary Period Update
Since the last Board meeting, Indian by Nature was inspected every two weeks and did not pass. Dr. Nusbaum, a food consultant, was there to support the restaurant. Dr. Nusbaurm said he thought the food was safe. Steve on the board said he was not comfortable eating there and therefore he could not allow other people to eat there.
Steve made a motion to revoked their permit immediately and Dr. Doyle seconded. Their license would be revoked immediately.
