Fall festival offers support for education


The annual October Special Town Meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Monday in the Town Hall auditorium, 35 Central St. Voters will be asked to consider 24 articles. Among the proposals to be considered is an article that would enact a bylaw enabling the Stoneham Police Department to conduct state and federal fingerprint-based criminal history checks for individuals applying for the following licenses: solicitors and canvassers; ice cream truck vendor; dealers in second-hand articles; and pawn dealers. Other articles seek funding to hire part-time help at Lindenwood Cemetery, and pay prior year medical bills for retired police officers and firefighters injured in the line of duty. To view the warrant, visit and click on the link to the Special Town Meeting from the home page.
