Tonights Planning Board Meeting

April 12, 2017

All,
This was the shortest meeting of the week. Less than 15 minutes. The Planning Board is not making a recommendation on the article; which is what Town Counsel said is the only choice they have. It was a good night.

Even though it appears all the boards are in agreement and the article will not be voted upon we urge you to stay tuned and please plan to attend the Town Meeting on April 24th.

Thank you,
Wally

All,
After this evening’s meeting, the Town Administrator told Joe DeMaina, Dave Basile and me that there WILL be a written opinion from Town Counsel and it would be sent to the Town Moderator and Planning Board so they would be aware that no action can be taken on the article.

Will update all after tomorrow (Wednesday) evening Planning Board meeting.

Stay tuned and please plan to attend the Town Meeting on April 24th.

Thank you,
Wally

Tonights (April 10th) Selectmen meeting

April 12, 2017
on.jsp?ca=75800812-9228-461e-ac2e-a4bb70ddf2c3&a=1127516633035&r=3&c=20efd910-1733-11e7-979d-d4ae5275dbea&ch=214b1870-1733-11e7-97ac-d4ae5275dbea
All,

At the Board of Selectmen meeting this evening, article 23 was discussed. As was explained by Town Counsel, the Town Administrator and the Board of Selectmen, because the petitioners all withdrew their names, the article is not valid and the moderator cannot entertain any motions.

When the Town Counsel was asked if he would issue an written opinion so the Town Moderator would have it in writing and follow that outline, he said he would if the Selectmen requested it. Chairman Phil Crawford said that the Board would not be requesting one.

Stay tuned and please plan to attend the Town Meeting on April 24th.
