• to engage an independent 3rd party to conduct a side-by-side analysis of the financial models from both Aquarion and the Town

  • to hold public forums on the proposal as a whole and invite public comment, questions and feedback

  • to obtain a binding proposal with a contract operator

  • to draft an MOU with Hull and Cohasset

  • to determine whether or not it is legal for Hingham to purchase assets in Hull and Cohasset

  • to explore other governance models, like a water district, for the sake of equity

  • to conduct a transition analysis

A rush to judgment is not the Hingham way.
