Town Government for the Week of November 19, 2018

By Meredith McCulloch

Two government meetings will be held on Monday, November 19. Meetings are not scheduled for the remainder of the week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

First, the Capital Expenditure Committee will meet at 6:30 to plan for their upcoming ranking of capital requests from town departments.

The Selectmen will meet at 7:30. The first item on their agenda is a hearing on the property tax classification for 2019, which is the foundation for setting the new tax rate.

Next, the Selectmen along with the DPW and Transportation Advisory Committee will review planning for Town-Wide Traffic/Bike/Pedestrian Access.
The Selectmen plan to set the Town Caucus date for Tuesday, January 8, at 7:00 pm with January 9 reserved for a snow date. A caucus nomination is one way that potential candidates for town offices may be nominated. Finally, the Town Manager will discuss potential Electric Vehicle Charging Stations.
