I’d hoped to wade a bit into the Town Meeting warrant today, but I returned from vacation to discover that the deadline for an incredibly labor-intensive special section had been moved up and I’m now optimistically hoping that I will tuck my kids into bed sometime… Friday.
In any case, have you checked out the warrant? We have 36 articles to plow through on Monday, and a few of them are doozies:
Article 24: Purchase of the Pell Farm for $2.175 million for conservation land;
Article 26: $750,000 for modular classrooms to ease overcrowding at Grafton Middle School (which, if it passes Town Meeting, will require a special election for the debt exclusion);
Article 32: Biomedical research bylaw. The draft language can be read here.
The full warrant can be read here.
Reserve your babysitters now and arrange a carpool with the neighbors so at least one parent can stay for the full meeting!
