Rockland: Town Meeting seeks money for senior center and road repairs

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.



About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
