Plymouth Town Meeting completed the Special Town Meeting warrant on Saturday, giving the go ahead to an article that involves the old downtown 1820 Court House.

Some think that the development of the 1820 Court House –a project that has been ongoing since 2009—has been stalled by competing visions.

But, town meeting liked the vision of the property as a government center and strongly approved a $75,000 feasibility study to explore that possibility.

Town meeting voted to establish a Nuclear Plant Mitigation Stabilization Fund and allowed the transfer of $1 million for that purpose, according to Finance Director Lynne Barrett: ”Our plan is to fund money into that stabilization fund every year so that if Entergy’s value of the plant decreases in future years we would have money available to mitigate any decreases in the taxes.”

The DPW’s solid waste budget got overwhelming support from town meeting. DPW Director Jonathan Beder says this means implementation of option three: “And that is to maintain service at one of the transfer stations, implement a single-stream curbside collection program, both of which will utilize a pay-as-you-throw program.”

Town meeting reconvenes tonight at Plymouth North High School.
