Special meeting called
A Special Town Meeting will be held Wednesday to refresh a 2010 Town Meeting vote petitioning the Legislature to grant the town government clemency from Chapter 30B, which requires public property to be offered on the open market if it is to be sold. The town is considering selling lots on Conomo Point, and if passed, the legislation will allow it to offer the lots to current tenants. The vote needs to be taken before the May 7 annual Town Meeting, when residents may be asked to act on another article proposing to sell the properties. Wednesday’s meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Essex Elementary School.
