According to Town Administrator Keith Bergman, assessors have estimated that the program’s expansion would generate another $64,729 per year for local affordable housing, recreation, open space, and historical preservation efforts. It was the only question on the ballot, in addition to a slate of town offices. The change will take effect in fiscal year 2014, which begins July 1.
