Town Meeting will address 23 articles

Continue reading below

There are 23 articles on the warrant for Tuesday’s annual Town Meeting, including one seeking a Proposition 2½ debt exclusion for the $3 million reconstruction of Linebrook Road. To pass, it will require both a two-thirds majority at Town Meeting and passage on the ballot at the town election on May 21. Also, a citizens petition article seeks $15,045 to reimburse the estate of Robertta C. Foster “for real property taxes incorrectly paid to the town, due to the town’s failure to notify the taxpayer of the 100 percent exemption to which she was entitled.” Under a 2006 law, Foster was entitled to the exemption as the widow of a veteran who died as a result of a combat injury, but according to the article she was never notified of the benefit. Other warrant articles seek a one-year moratorium on medical marijuana treatment centers, and bylaw changes for both animal control and the raising of chickens on residential lots of less than 1 acre. The meeting is scheduled for the Performing Arts Center at the middle school/high school, High Street, at 7:30 p.m.
