Hanover residents unanimously voted against privatizing the town’s transfer station at last night’s Town Meeting.
More than a dozen residents spoke out against the privatization proposal that would have significantly increased the amount of waste the facility would handle, but could save the town as much as $640,000 annually.
Selectmen said they wanted to study the proposal as a way of raising additional revenue for the town.
Town Meeting got through all nine articles in the special Town Meeting warrant and 19 of the 66 annual Town Meeting articles. Town Meeting will resume tonight at 7 p.m. at Hanover High School.
