April 27, 2019 - From Eversource: Eversource is are starting to plan the final phase for Moody Street to increase the reliability to the area. The final phase will consist of three permits scheduled for May 20, June 3 and June 10, the three permits will affect three different areas, the customers involved will only go out once.
The first planned outage is planned for Monday morning, May 20 starting at 12:01AM (weather permitting). The duration of the outage is projected to be 8 hours. This outage will affect 115 customers.
The scheduled Permit # 166666-1 will replace an old inoperative oil switch with a new vacuum switch on Moody Street. Eversource will hand deliver notices to all customers prior to the planned outages.
The three permits will replace 7 existing switches, all new switches will be radio controlled for faster restoration in any future incidents. I will forward the customer list for the other two permits when available.

Welcome to the Neighborhood: Balani
469 Moody Street (article from The Waltham Channel)
An eclectic new restaurant is now open for dinner at 469 Moody Street in the former Raffaele’s location. The rotating menu includes quirky comfort food classics that “sound a little weirder than they are” on the menu, according to Balani owner Dave Becker.
The offerings include donut holes, fried chicken, pizza, flatbreads, burgers and poutine. But don’t be surprised if South American empanadas and Vietnamese pho turn up. Mains run from $20–29, and Balani is open from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday. Becker has earned acclaim with his other two restaurants, Sweet Basil in Needham and Juniper in Wellesley. Laid back in his approach, Becker stenciled a makeshift sign when Balani first opened a little while back. The final sign is on the way... Good luck! Photo: Balani (Article/ The Waltham Channel)

Information from the Waltham Health Department:
The City of Waltham Board of Health will work together with residents, business owners, and other City Departments to promote a better understanding of rat/rodent behavior and how to minimize their presence and impact on the community. Our inspectors are committed to rodent control and providing educational information to the public. By working together we can keep our neighborhoods clean and healthy. There's no way around it! To send the rats packing we all have to work together.
