Here’s a link to the Article as it will appear on the Ballot:
What it means: The town has a capital reserve for items relating to the upkeep of the cemetery. This Article seeks approval to use the funds to replace a failing plow truck. There would be no tax impact, as the funds are already in reserve.
Those in favor say: The existing truck has been “jerry-rigged” into continued functionality, but it needs to be replaced. If the snow plow is not working, outside services must be contracted to do the plowing. So proponents say this will save money in the long run.
Those against say: A speaker made a procedural comment that the Cemetery Commission did not hold the required meeting (or there was no record of it) and yet they produced a budget.
Fiscal Impact: No tax impact.
