Daily Buzz | May 2022 Town Meeting Night 1 Highlights
Written with one thumb from the bed of a toddler because that’s how my night went 😩
I’m here after a long and informative night at Town Meeting. We passed the $170,000,000 operating budget, the revolving fund caps, and the first 13 capital articles. Many were held for further discussion, which will continue Wednesday at 7:00 PM. (This is a new time going forward.)
As I mentioned, we voted to pass the town’s $170 million operating budget, which funds the government and its departments, including personnel. Here are a few more highlights:
Francis Wyman will be getting a new playground.
The Fire department will get a new communications system.
The Route 3A Transportation Study will move forward
And much more!
I could use a coffee after a late night; if you’re so inclined, feel free to press that button. ⬇
