Informational Forum for Town Meeting

When: Feb. 24 (Tuesday) at 6:30 pm

Where: Cavendish Town Office

The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association will hold an informational forum for Cavendish voters on the Tuesday before this year’s town meeting. The forum will be held on Tuesday, February 24th, starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Cavendish Town Offices on High Street in Cavendish. The forum will be recorded by LPC-TV and will be broadcast at various times during the week before town meeting. The video will also be available for viewing on www.lpctv.org.

The discussion will address each of the issues on this year’s town meeting ballot, including both the town and the school proposed budgets. Other articles requiring a vote will be discussed, including Article 4 that asks if the voters will approve of taking the town's burial grounds out of the charge of the board of cemetery commissioners and place them under the charge of the selectmen. An affirmative vote on this article will cause the office of the Cavendish cemetery commissioners to terminate. Finally, voters are asked to approve the use of a surplus from 2014 to reduce 2016 taxes. Town and school officials will be present to discuss each issue.

Although there are no contested races on the ballot this year, all candidates are invited to attend and any candidates who are present will be able to make short statements and to answer attendees’ questions. The meeting is open to all Cavendish citizens and residents.  For more information, please call Peter LaBelle at 802-376-5648.
