The board also heard comments from David Ball of the Scituate Historical Society on the appropriation of funds for the town’s historical sites, including Lawson Tower and Scituate Lighthouse.

There is $11,000 set aside in the town’s MBTA mitigation agreement account for repairs to the lighthouse.

Ball said the money isn’t needed now, but he wanted reassurance that it would be there when the time comes.

“It (the optic) is currently only 15 to 16 years old and in good condition,” Ball said. “But it is like a stop light; it needs to be replaced as quickly as possible when it goes out.”

The board told Ball that the money would remain in the budget for the lighthouse and that he would not need to get the board’s approval once again for the money when the light does go out
