TOWNSHEND—Because of a glitch in budget figures, Townshend will be a two Town Meeting municipality in 2012.
According to Craig Hunt, assistant to the Selectboard, last-minute changes to the budget caused the information to come in past the deadline for posting the warrant.
Selectboard Chair Hedy Harris said certain budget calculations were unexpectedly delayed.
“We worked to rectify that,” she said. “We didn’t have the budget completely nailed down. We were one day late.”
Consequently, the Townshend Selectboard has scheduled a Special Town Meeting for April 2, in the Town Hall at 6 p.m. for ratification of the actions that may be taken at the annual town meeting on March 6.
By state statute, an annual Town Meeting warrant must be warned 30 days before the meeting date.
