Voters pass most articles

Voters at last Monday’s annual Town Meeting passed 32 of 33 articles on the warrant and in record time, said Town Clerk Barbara Sullivan. For the last three years, Town Meeting voters have made quick work of the warrant, finishing in one night, a far cry from more contentious years when meetings would run four nights, she said. This year’s meeting lasted three hours and 10 minutes, which she said “was the fastest of the last three years.” Voters passed a variety of money articles, including funding a new police cruiser, technology upgrade for schools, installing town water on Cove Street, and a fire boat pump. The only article failing was a citizen petition seeking $447,096 for road work in the Pinehurst, Kerwin, Cedar Point, and Oaklawn avenues area of town. The petition, which needed a two-thirds majority vote, only got three votes, Sullivan said, with 53 against. Town Meeting drew 142 voters, she said, which “is a little bit below average.”
