Voters issue OKs, but balk at one item


Voters completed the business of both the Special Town Meeting and the annual Town Meeting in one session Monday evening, passing almost all of the articles on both warrants. The exception was Article 28 of the annual Town Meeting, which would have established a stabilization fund for the Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical School District. The town is scheduled to spend $27,961,437 in Fiscal 2015. Voters approved the local option to add .75 percent to the state meals tax that many other local communities have already adopted. They also approved Water Commissioners spending $285,000 for water meters and other equipment, and allowed the commission to borrow up to $1.48 million to paint the five-million-gallon water tank on Spring Street and to decommission and take down a 500,000-gallon water tank. They also passed a zoning bylaw relegating the siting of possible medical marijuana facilities to a specified industrial district.
