Milton will hold its first "Fall Town Meeting” tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Milton High School to vote on six warrant articles, including one about the demolition of a building on Eliot Street and the zoning of a landscaping business.

Town Meeting members voted at the annual Town Meeting in May to change a local bylaw and require two annual meetings instead of an annual and a special. The fall meeting would be on the fourth Monday of each October and the spring meeting in May.

Here’s a look at what’s on tonight’s warrant and don’t forget to check @YourTownMilton on Twitter for live updates from the meeting.

Article One: To see if the town will appropriate $198,278 of unrestricted state aid to the town’s stabilization and capital stabilization funds.

Article Two: To see if the town will appropriate $485,000 to finance the rehabilitation, replacement, or enhancement of the town’s sewer system.

Article Three: To see if the town will reduce the funds appropriated for five water, sewer, and public works items approved in Article 16 of the May 2012 meeting.

Article Four: To see how much the town will appropriate for the demolition of a building located on a town-owned piece of property at Eliot Street and Central Avenue. The cost of demolition has not yet been determined but will need to include the cost of the actual demolition, police detail and the busing of Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority passengers around the site.

Article Five: To see if the town will approve an amendment to the zoning bylaws to allow for the ongoing operation of a landscaping business that has been in operation since January 1992.

Article Six: To see if the town will approve a change to zoning bylaws that will allow for assisted living development after a special develop permit has been issued.

A full warrant is available on the town website.
