Lanesborough Town Meeting Approves $10.7M Budget and More

By Andy McKeeveriBerkshires Staff

It was Chris Dodig's first annual town meeting since being elected as moderator last year in a write-in campaign.
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Town meeting approved 35 of 38 warrant articles Tuesday night including the $10.7 million budget and a study for a future police station, but denied the sale of a parcel of land the town owns on North Main Street originally intended for senior housing.
The meeting came with few fireworks, unlike last year, and moved along at a decent clip considering the number of articles. Moderator Chris Dodig, at his first annual town meeting, set the tone early.
"I did some quick math: 38 warrant articles at 5 mins each, that's 190 mins -- that is over three hours -- if we spent 10 minutes on each, that would be longer than any of us are willing to stay," Dodig said before asking to start with a three-minute limit per speaker to help move it along. His estimate was fairly accurate as the meeting took just short of 3 1/2 hours.
"We will quarrel, that's to be expected, let's do it respectfully," Dodig said after a few opening statements.
