Hingham: Town meeting voters to take on budget, sewer project, community preservation articles

Hingham Town Meeting gets underway Monday night, and Town Administrator Ted Alexiades is hopeful that they can finish town business in one night– though he believes it’s more likely it will take two.

In addition to the town’s $84 million operating budget, Alexiades says there are a few significant projects going before town meeting voters. The town also looking for about $190,000 to fund engineering work for the South Hingham sewer district, in order to expand into the town’s waste-water collection system. There are also several community preservation proposals on the town meeting warrant.

There are only 47 articles, which, according to Alexiades, is slightly smaller than in past years. The meeting kicks off at 7 p.m. Monday at Hingham High School, and will continue on Tuesday night if necessary.
