The City Council recently granted Linda Realty Trust an amendment to the inflammables license for 278 Forest St.

The council on Oct. 28 had granted the firm an inflammables license for that site that allowed for the parking of home heating oil delivery trucks with a combined capacity of 14,900 gallons of diesel fuel, and gas tanker trucks with a combined capacity of 110,000 gallons of gas. The amendment approved by the council at its recent meeting, on Dec. 9 allows the firm to increase the maximum capacity of diesel fuels trucks at the site by 15,800 gallons.  

In other business, the council granted an amendment to the special permit that it granted to JAM Enterprises, LLC, in 2009 to operate a SONIC drive-in restaurant at 55 Newbury St. (Route 1 North). The amendment changes the restaurant's permitted hours of operation to 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Until now, the restaurant was permitted to operate from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week, according to city clerk Timothy Spanos.  

The council opened a hearing into a request by National Grid to install in front of 390 Lynnfield St. a new pole with a device on it that is used to detect underground gas leaks. Cathy Mahalares, owner of 390 Lynnfield St. spoke in opposition to the application due to objections to the pole location, according to Spanos. At the request of Ward 1 Councilor Barry Osborne, who represents that area, the council continued the hearing until Jan. 13 to allow for Osborne, Mahalares and National Grid officials to try and come up with a solution agreeable to the utility and the homeowner. – John Laidler
