Tonight, Abington voters will address a 5 article Special Town Meeting warrant and a 25 article Annual Town Meeting warrant.
The Finance Committee is recommending passing over 4 of the 5 articles on the Special Town Meeting warrant because, according to the warrant, funding for the expenses was made available through a prior inter-departmental fund transfer.
Among the articles on the Annual Town Meeting warrant is the budget for next year – $40.2 million. Article 12 asks voters to approve $725,000 for a Comprehensive Water Resources Management Plan. Article 16 proposes a temporary moratorium on medical marijuana facilities in town through June 30, 2014. Article 21, if approved, would restore the land known as “Griffin’s Dairy” back to agricultural use.
Abington Town meeting convenes at 7:00 p.m. at the high school.
