Shall the Town of Hampton vote to amend Chapter 420 Solid Waste of the Code of the Town of Hampton by deleting in Section 420-2 B everything after the word “Town” including sub-paragraphs (1) and (2), and by adding the following new sub-paragraph 420-2, C: Hours for winter and summer operations of the Transfer Station shall be determined by the Board of Selectmen and posted on the Town’s Web Site? (Majority vote required)
What it means: Currently, the hours for the town’s transfer station are noted in the ordinance. To change the hours requires a Warrant Article at Town Meeting, which occurs once each year. Article 32 would remove the specifics of the hours from the ordinance and instead note that the hours will be posted on the Town’s Website.
Those in favor say: This Article will make it easier to keep the hours current.
Those against say: By doing this, voters are giving more power to the Board of Selectmen instead of reserving that power for themselves.
Fiscal Impact: No tax impact.
