Selectmen will fund housing plan

Continue reading below

Town Meeting members provided no money for an affordable housing plan, but selectmen will fund the plan with money from this year’s operating budget. The Housing Production Plan requires the town to construct at least 48 affordable units each year, a feat that has not happened in recent memory, according to Selectman Thomas Hurley and Warrant Committee Secretary Ted Hays. Selectmen and Warrant Committee members both recommended at Town Meeting Tuesday that no money be set aside for the plan. Instead, selectmen will pay $5,000 to have the plan put together starting this spring. Voters also supported setting aside $100,000 of year-end free cash for creating a Master Plan, as well as starting a fund to pay for recurring medical expenses for a public safety worker injured in the line of duty.
