Selectmen voted at a recent meeting to keep most spending items off the warrant for the Nov. 13 Special Town Meeting.
Selectmen said they didn’t want to send the items to the town for a vote until they receive Finance Department numbers on how much money is available.
“It’s the same as not looking in your pocket when you walk in a store and start shopping,” Selectman John Zizza said.
Selectmen are also waiting for the Capital Budget Planning Committee to make spending recommendations. Town Administrator Steven Boudreau said selectmen will likely schedule another Town Meeting for December or January to deal with the spending items.
The warrant for the Nov. 13 meeting contains 27 articles, Boudreau said.
