ATTENTION EASTON RESIDENTS
IMPORTANT SPECIAL TOWN MEETING
Monday, March 24, 2014, 7 PM, Staples School Cafetorium
New Ordinance regarding Municipal Land Transactions
The proposed ordinance reads as follows: “The Town shall neither acquire, lend, borrow, lease nor dispose of any real Town property by any means whatsoever without the prior express approval of its legislative body, the Town Meeting.”
It is important to note that the proposed statute does not change the number of meetings required in dealing with municipal land transactions. Rather it changes the nature of the meeting from the currently required Public Hearing, where citizens speak but there is not vote, to a Town Meeting, where citizens discuss the issue and then vote.
