Only one item rejected at Upton town meeting

Posted by Martin Finucane March 16, 2007 03:02 PM


Voters approved 12 of the 13 articles on the warrant of last Tuesday's Special Town Meeting.

In an interesting twist, Town Moderator David Loeper could not attend, so Town Clerk Kelly A. McElreath filled in, based on a letter Loeper wrote recommending that she fill the position. Voters rejected only one item: a $15,000 expenditure to purchase an animal control vehicle for the Board of Health.

The remaining articles passed with either unanimous or more than two-thirds approval. Fifty-five voters attended, McElreath said.
