Hanson: Town prepares for town meeting, Boy Scout troop hosts fall event

Tuesday night the Hanson Board of Selectmen voted to recommend approval of 25 articles which will be on the October special town meeting warrant. The board passed on only one article, Article 8 which was proposed by the Town Administrator to fund the purchase of transfer station computer software costing approximately $7,000. Hanson selectmen did not say they disapproved of the article.

Chair Stephen Amico announced that the last day to register to vote is September 23rd. The special town meeting will be held at the Hanson Middle School at 7:30 on Monday October 3rd. One hundred registered voters must be in attendance to start the meeting.

With the first official day of fall around the corner, Hanson Boy Scout Troop 34 is kicking off the season with a Pumpkin Sale. Hanson Selectmen granted the Boy Scout troop permission to use the town hall lawn on October 1st and 2nd from 7AM to 7PM both days.

Troop 34′s Senior Patrol Leader Brendan Keane explained that the event will be similar to last year’s, “We had pumpkins for sale. We had small, large, medium pumpkins. We also had some activities for the younger kids; we had a station where one of the moms is really good with art and she likes carving pumpkins as well so she had a carving station and an art decorating station.”
