The period for input on the issue has been extended to March 15.
Dedham Town Administrator Bill Keegan has yet to hear a response from the Federal Aviation Administration regarding a proposed change in flight paths heading south from Logan Airport that lie directly over Dedham. A letter was written two weeks ago on behalf of the Board of Selectmen who expressed their concerns about redirecting flights over the town. “We haven’t had any real response back from the FAA about but apparently there’s been an extension of the comment period into March so I don’t know what’s happened beyond that,” Keegan said. The proposal, which FAA says the new routes will improve safety and efficiency, was announced Feb. 5 and the period for public comment has since been extended to March 15.

The sequester would automatically go into effect Friday, March 1 unless Congress takes action to stop it.
With uncertainty as to whether $85 billion in federal sequestration spending cuts will be stopped by Congress before Friday, officials in Walpole are keeping a close eye on the issue.
