Annual Town Meeting last weekend approved a town operating budget of $38.5 million, including more than $600,000 for new equipment and more than $400,000 for Community Preservation Act projects. Capital equipment and project expenditures included $67,000 for a roll-off trailer for the solid-waste department and $500,000 for a pumping engine for the Fire Department. The Community Preservation expenditures included $184,000 for an archeological study of the Hall property and $156,000 in construction money for athletic fields on that property; and $33,000 to rehabilitate the tennis and basketball courts at Gray’s Beach. Voters were not asked to consider a controversial proposal to spend $585,000 to purchase the 200 Main St. property for affordable housing, because its backers failed to make a motion for a vote.
