Annual Town Meeting

Upton's Annual Town Meeting was held on May 8th.

Voters approved the creation of a Town Manager position to be funded at some future date, and established Enterprise funds for Water and Wastewater.

They also approved a Proposition 2 1/2 Override in the amount of $486,000. These additional tax revenues will be needed to maintain Municipal services for next fiscal year. The override is not final until it is approved at a ballot vote, which will be held on June 9th at Nipmuc High School.

All the monetary appropriations have been delayed until another Town Meeting on June 12th at 7:30pm, so that voters will know the results of the override before they discuss spending any money.

The library has copies of all the informational handouts that were presented at the meeting, available for review on the Reference Shelf.
