Meetings offer information about Annual Town Meeting

More information on the meeting articles will appear in The Commons’ annual Town Meeting Day roundup in next week’s paper.

ROCKINGHAM—Town officials have scheduled three public informational meetings prior to the March 1 Annual Town Meeting to explain the proposed budget and several warrant articles.

The first was held Tuesday, Feb. 15, after press time, at the regular Selectboard meeting. It related to article #9, the proposed railroad station purchase. Approval of this article at annual meeting will add 1{1/2} cents to the current tax rate. You can review this meeting on Falls Area Community TV’s website.

Mike Smith and Marty Gallagher will host the next meeting, on Wednesday, Feb. 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the Town Hall lower theater — which is accessible — for those who wish to attend in person. Covid protocols (masks and social distancing) will be in place.

The third meeting is set for Monday, Feb. 28 in the lower theater of Town Hall. The meeting is being held in the lower theater due to unstable WiFi conditions in the opera house theater.

If all articles are approved as recommended, the town will see a 1-cent decrease in the tax rate. All articles on the warrant will be decided this year by Australian ballot. No money articles may be changed; they must be voted up or down.
