When Councilor Sal LaMattina was named vice chair of the Boston City Council Ways and Means Committee last month, little did we realize then that maybe his appointment came just in the nick of time for Charlestown.
The waste transfer station needs to have zoning changes approved by the City Council. However, these requests will first have to go before Councilor LaMattina’s committee.
We know that Councilor LaMattina will hear these requests and debate the pros and cons of the changes. Council President Michele Wu will also be a key participant in these discussions. But like so many requests that are heard, some make it out of committee and others just stay in committee.
We hope that this request will just stay in committee. But that is only our opinion.
