Following is a message from Town Attorney Vincent Marino:

The referendum on our annual budget and the Charter Revision will be held tomorrow, May 18th. The polls are open between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. at the High Plains Community Center.

State law requires a 15% voter turnout (1,700 voters) in order for the Charter Revision vote to count. We need you to come out and vote!

For the past year and a half, I have been working as town attorney with town officials and a number of volunteers to review our town’s charter and determine whether recommended changes are advisable.

After a lot of effort by the Board of Selectmen and the Charter Review Commission, it has been determined that the questions on the attached ballot should be put out to a referendum. While those of us that have been involved in this process believe that these recommendations are in the best interest of our town, the ultimate decision rests with the voters.

It is very important that as many registered voters as possible come out for this referendum. At least 1,700 are necessary to pass this referendum, (more than four times the number who voted in this week’s referendum) so mark your calendars, check out the questions in the previous story and educate yourself on the issues.
