Marshfield residents will be asked to approve a $5.1 million proposal to borrow the money for the town’s aging and crumbling seawalls at tonight’s Town Meeting. The money would be used for an 1100-foot section of sea wall in Fieldston, to repair the revetment in front of the sea wall in Hewitt’s Point, and also to come up with a plan to replace 2,600 feet of sea wall in Ocean Bluff. Because the article, which was submitted by Tom Reynolds, the town’s DPW Superintendent, involves taking out a loan, it requires a two-thirds majority. The capital budget committee has come out in favor of the seawall article.
Also on the warrant in Marshfield is an article for a one-year moratorium on medical marijuana facilities, a $79.4 million operating budget and a number of Community Preservation Act articles.
Town meeting is at 7:00 p.m. at the Furnace Brook Middle School.
