Mendon Voters to Deal with Approximately $113,000 Warrant

The Mendon Board of Selectmen reviewed a 13 article warrant during their June 6 meeting. A total of $113,561 worth of articles are on the warrant that are to be voted on during a June 21 Special Town Meeting.

The majority of articles are seeking funding from free cash, including Article 1 which is requesting up to $5,000 to pay an independent consultant for the Route 16 solar project out of the Selectmen's Professional Services Expenses.

Article 2 is seeking $3,813 for Assessor's Professional Services Expenses. Funding is needed to pay the Assessor's appraisal expert who is representing the Board in a case before the state Appellate Tax Board; a developer is challenging the Assessor's appraisal of his property. Funding will also be used to pay the individual for reviewing the contract associated with the solar project on Route 16.

The Board of Health is bringing forward three articles and includes Article 6 which is requesting $2,450 in order to cover bills from the Board's Engineer. Due to the fact that the Board of Health's disposal costs are higher than in prior years, Article 7 is seeking $2,000 for the trash disposal line item. And Article 8 is seeking $1,500 in anticipation of any testing that will need to be done on Lake Nipmuc this summer.

Other articles include Article 3 which is requesting $34,771 for Town Counsel invoices from February through May. Article 4 is to fund the Planning Board's annual fee of $1,515 as part of the Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission and Article 5 is to fund Town Hall computer expenses totaling $5,125; funding will cover overages from Worldband, back up software, the town Web site's domain renewal, among others. Article 9 will fund the snow and ice deficit for $29,387

Article 12 is seeking $25,000 of Community Preservation Act funding to install a drainage system to Tetreault Field and upgrades and repairs to Veteran's Park field. And Article 13 is being brought forward by the Land Use Committee which is requesting up to $3,000 for a beaver trapping project.

Several nonfinancial articles are also on the warrant and include a bylaw change that, if passed, will discontinue inserting town meeting warrants in the Town Crier Newspaper. According to Town Clerk Margaret Bonderenko, the warrant will still be posted at several locations in town and also posted on the town's Web site. And Article 10 is requesting that Irons Way in the White Pines Estate subdivision be accepted as a public way.

The Tuesday, June 21 Special Town Meeting will take place at Miscoe Hill School and begin at 7 p.m. The finalized warrant can be found on the Web site at www.mendonma.gov.
