    Town Meeting to vote on spending

    Voters at the annual Town Meeting May 13 will face articles on such issues as road repairs, equipment purchases, and a study to decide what will become of the aging Marion Town House. One article seeks $3.1 million for work on roads and sewer lines on Ryder Lane and Spring Street, part of a 10-year upgrade that will cost a total of $18.4 million, said Town Administrator Paul Dawson. Other fiscal articles include $595,000 for a new pumper truck for the Fire Department; $150,000 from the town’s waterways account for docks and pilings at the town pier; and $80,000 to pay for snow removal this past winter. Voters will also act on $100,000 being sought for design studies on the Marion Town House, which was the original Tabor Academy when it was built in 1877. Town Meeting starts at 6:45 p.m. at Sippican School.
