05:31AM / Thursday, March 28, 2024
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Town officials have heaved a sigh of relief with the state's certification of free cash for the first time in more than three years.   The town's parade of employees through its financial offices the past few years put it behind on closing out its fiscal years between 2021 and 2023.
