At tonight’s opening session of Rockland Town meeting, residents of the town will be asked to borrow money to fund a new senior center and for road repairs in town.
At last month’s annual election, voters approved increasing their property taxes to provide $3 million for the new senior center and $3.7 million for road repairs.
Tonight, there will be a regular annual town meeting and a special town meeting where voters will be asked to approve the town’s purchase of land adjacent to the former Beech Street landfill. The town has been looking for a developer to build a solar-energy system on 23 acres of the capped landfill.
There are nine articles on the special town meeting warrant and 63 on the annual town meeting warrant.
Tonight’s meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the new high school auditorium.
