On the day the commonwealth began again allowing restaurants to serve diners indoors, the Williamstown announced that on Saturday it will temporarily close Spring Street to allow eateries to set up tables in the road.
At the end of Monday's more than 2 1/2-hour meeting of the Select Board, Chair Jane Patton announced that the street will be closed from 4 to 10 p.m. Saturday.
Patton, the vice president of the Williamstown Chamber of Commerce, said there was unanimous agreement from the street's restaurants in a recent virtual meeting by the chamber that the owners wanted to give outdoor table service a try.
It was the third time the subject has come up in a Select Board meeting since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
