Plymouth: Town Meeting to reconvene Monday

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

Some think that the development of the 1820 Courthouse, 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 dollars for that purpose.

Finance Director Lynne Barrett said “Our plan is to fund money into that stabilization fund every year so that if the 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, “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 also approved a general fund operating budget of $170 million on Saturday.

The meeting reconvenes Monday night at Plymouth North High School.
