Town Meeting on budget increases


A Special Town Meeting at which residents will be asked to fork over some major funding is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Monday at Norwell Middle School. Selectmen chairwoman Ellen Allen said that even though there aren’t a large number of items on the warrant, “virtually every one is a big issue – from deciding whether or not to move ahead with building a new police station, to installing new turf fields at the high school, to expanding pathways in town . . . and also some land purchases.” If residents support the $5.2 million appropriation for a new 12,000-square-foot police station, the debt-exclusion override will be put to a vote at a special election on Oct. 19. “This Special Town Meeting is important,” Allen said. “There are things here that will affect every voter in town.”
