Dalton Voters OK Articles at Special Town Meeting
DALTON, Mass. — Fewer than a dozen voters at Monday's special town meeting took only 10 minutes to pass the two articles on the warrant.
Article 1 was amended to include an additional $4,000 to cover trash removal from Town Hall, the senior center, garage, and park, based on a recent contract proposal with Casella.
This addition brought the total amount for Article 1 to $12,643, of which $8,6324 will pay sewer and debt expenses that were not anticipated for the annual town meeting.
Article 3 transfers $2,066 from free cash to the Miscellaneous Grants account to cure a deficit.
Of this amount, $1,436 will be used for an e-911 grant, $630 will be used for funding the Coronavirus Supplemental Funding Program.
Each of these articles passed with little to no discussion.
The town meeting voted to pass over Article 2 based off the recommendation from the Select Board and Finance Committee
. The question would have added another $100,000 to the Town Hall renovation project but the two boards agreed to delay any work on the third floor that was expected to trip more costly accessibility updates.
