Pre-Town Meeting 2013

The Wellfleet Community Forum will sponsor Pre-Town Meeting, an informal discussion of articles on Wellfleet’s Annual Town Meeting Warrant, at 7:30PM on Wednesday, April 17 at Preservation Hall, 335 Main Street, in Wellfleet, Mass.

Town moderator Bruce Bierhans will preside, and selectmen and other town officials will be on hand to clarify the issues and explain what is being proposed.  Pre-Town Meeting helps prepare voters to make informed decisions at Town Meeting, and all Wellfleet voters are encouraged to attend.

Of the 40-plus articles on the 2013 Annual Town Meeting warrant, those expected to garner the most interest are articles related to a Charter change to make the positions of Town Clerk, Town Treasurer, and Town Collector appointed rather than elected;  an appropriation of $250,000 for a new tanker truck; establishment of an “Aid to the Elderly or Disabled Taxation Fund” funded by voluntary donations collected as part of the tax collection process;  permitting Community Preservation Fund revenues that would provide estate planning assistance to those who plan to transfer or bequeath assets to the Affordable Housing program.
