Special town meeting in September to feature some big issues

I’ve mentioned it before, but here’s your official save the date for the special town meeting this fall. It will be held on Tuesday, September 29 at 7:00 pm at Trottier, so get your babysitters lined up.

There are 15 articles on the warrant, several of them — like purchasing a new ladder truck — are quite meaty. You can find a draft copy of the warrant on the Southborough Advisory Committee website, but here’s a summary of some of the issues expected to come up at the meeting:

We’ve already talked about some of these issues on the blog, but others like the marijuana bylaw, we haven’t gotten to yet. Expect more info in the run-up to town meeting. If there are any on this list you’re particularly interested in, let me know in the comments.

Ummm….What’s up with the new bylaw about the public consumption of marijuana?!? Medical or recreational usage?!?

There are enough problems on Latisquama due to underage drinking, particularly on the golf course.

NEWS FLASH: The back hill on St. Mark’s Golf Course is the Studio 54 of Southborough! Parents should know this already but if you don’t, ask your kids where they were on Saturday night…)

The prospect of drunk AND high teenagers puking on our lawns is not particularly appealing.

More information is needed on this one….

I thought we passed the purchase of a new police car?

Thanks for the info Susan. I’m so glad to hear that the proposed bylaw for Southborough is stricter than the state mandate!

Perhaps at a time when we have asked town employees to take a pay cut, it might be prudent to ask the police department to defer the purchase of this car.
