Residents approve nine articles at Oct. 15 town meeting

Approximately 200 residents approved all nine articles in less than an hour at Lynnfield’s Special Town Meeting on Oct. 15. Among the articles approved was one that reauthorized $90,000 to buy a senior center van (the money was originally part of a sum allocated for a fire truck, but the purchase price was lower than anticipated), and another that accepted 103 acres donated by National Development for open space, a golf course, and passive recreational uses as part of the agreement for the Market Street at Lynnfield mixed-use development. Another article approved will require applicants for certain licenses to undergo a fingerprint background check. Those would include solicitors, canvassers, liquor licensees, taxi operators, secondhand article or motor vehicle dealers, hawkers and peddlers, and ice cream truck vendors.
