In the News: Lake Quinsigamond Commission

This week State Rep. Hannah Kane of Worcester’s 11th District and Michael Moore of the Massachusetts State Senate saw their bill, updating the charged responsibilities and rights of the Lake Quinsigamond Commission. This bill will help the commission to carry out their mission to preserve and improve our beloved Lake Quinsigamond.
