Town meeting giveth, and not ...

Town Meeting voters this week shot down an article that would have paid School Committee members an annual stipend of $200.

Most other elected board members in town receive the stipend, but members of Advisory Committee, which acts as the town’s finance committee, said they wanted to reconsider all stipends in the spring rather than grant more of them.

Voters also approved spending $550,000 of Community Preservation funds to purchase approximately 44 acres of land abutting Highland Lake. The land will be used for open space or
affordable housing.

Town Meeting continues on Monday night at 7:30 p.m.at the H. Olive Day School.
