5 Things to Know Today, Thursday, Aug. 16
Here's Five Things.
Transit Bill: About $3 million has been earmarked for several projects in Medford, including a parking control system, in a transportation bill signed by Gov. Deval Patrick last week. The earmarks, put in by local legislators, don't guarantee the money is spent on the specific projects. "The legislature can put anything it wants into the bond bill, the hope is the governor will allocate it," State Rep. Paul Donato said Tuesday. “The governor is the only one who can spend the money.”
Weather: There's a 50 percent chance of rain today with highs expected in the mid 80s, according to the National Weather Service. Mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 80s are expected tomorrow.
