Truro rescheduled Special Town Meeting to be held on January 15

Nine articles--mostly regarding public safety--up for a vote

The Town of Truro will hold a Special Town Meeting on Wednesday, January 15 at 6 p.m. at the Truro Community Center. There are nine articles on the warrant, most of which have to do with public safety issues.

The Special Town Meeting was originally scheduled for November 12, 2013, but failed to reach a quorum.

The Special Town Meeting Warrant was opened on December 17, 2013 and closed on December 26, 2013.

One hundred Truro voters are required to open the Special Town Meeting this Wednesday night.

Barring a change in dates, the warrant for the January 15 meeting is the same as that presented for the November 12 town meeting.

As previously reported in November, the majority of the articles have to do with public safety funding including funds for the acquisition of new police vehicles. Voters, should enough of them show up this time around, will also vote on funding for affordable housing items.
