Meeting will be asked to buy ladder truck

Among the 51 articles on Monday’s annual Town Meeting warrant is one seeking a temporary tax increase pay for a $735,000 ladder truck for the Fire Department. As a Proposition 2½ debt-exclusion override, the proposal would need two-thirds majority support at Town Meeting, and then a simple majority at the May 13 town election to be enacted. Another article requiring a two-thirds majority, but not an override of Proposition 2½, is a proposal to purchase 207 acres on Wethersfield Street from the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts for $2.5 million. Town Meeting is to convene at the Pine Grove Elementary School on Main Street at 7:30 p.m.
