Town Meeting to be delayed

Continue reading below

The start of Town Meeting has been pushed back to May 20, following the decision by selectmen to move the annual town election to April 30 to coincide with the primary election for US Senate. The town election orginally was scheduled for April 9 and Town Meeting for May 6. Town Clerk Cheryl Mooney said she didn’t know exactly how much the town will save by having both elections on the same day, because she doesn’t know much the state will reimburse the town for the costs of the Senate election, but she estimated the savings at $4,000. The change in the start of Town Meeting will mean new dates for the organizational Town Meeting and the precinct caucuses to fill any Town Meeting seats still vacant after the town election. Moderator Howard Hansen has expressed concerns about getting Town Meeting business completed before fiscal 2013 ends on June 30.
