Here’s a link to the Article as it will appear on the Ballot:
What it means: This Article would authorize the Town or representatives to gather information about generating electricity by installing solar panels on top of the landfill. There is no immediate tax impact because it is a study only.
Those in favor say: Since this is only a study, why not look into it?
Those against say: Those against this Article were those with knowledge of the cover that was put on top of the landfill. Apparently, it was not done very well and previous attempts to use the landfill for various community amenities have not been successful. The landfill membrane is weak and would not sustain the stone blocks that would be needed to hold the solar panels in place. It would be neither safe nor effective without proper support. They say it would be a waste of time to explore that particular location for solar panels.
Fiscal Impact: No tax impact.
