The warrant for the Nov. 18 Special Town Meeting will contain an article seeking $151,000 to buy approximately 4 acres at Phillips Beach, to clarify the title for access purposes. The purchase is part of the settlement of a Land Court case in which the town argued it held an easement on the property to gain access to the beach. The land is currently held in private trust. The Board of Selectmen met last Monday for final discussion of the articles and to sign the warrant.
