To The Daily Sun,
Belmont taxpayers should vote "No" on the following four warrant articles on March 10:
NO — Article 3. Shall the Town vote to raise and appropriate $3,357,250 (to) renovate the Belmont Mill for use as town offices, and to authorize the issuance of not more than $2,957,250 of bonds or notes in accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Finance Act (RSA 33) and to authorize the municipal officials to issue and negotiate such bonds or notes and to determine the rate of interest thereon; the balance of funding for the project ($400,000) to come from the Municipal Facilities Capital Reserve for which the selectmen are agents to expend? A 3/5 ballot vote required
NO — Article 6. Shall the town vote to raise and appropriate $300,000 (to) purchase and equip a used ladder truck, and to fund this appropriation by authorizing of said amount from the Fire/Ambulance Equipment and Apparatus Special Revenue Fund (Comstar) previously established in accordance with RSA 31:95, c (Created 1994/Amended 1999)?
NO — Article 12. Shall the Town vote to raise and appropriate $125,000 to be placed in the Municipal Facilities Capital Reserve Fund previously established (2006)?
NO — Article 26. Shall the Town vote to rescind the provisions of RSA 40:13 (known as SB-2) as adopted by the Town of Belmont on March 15, 2008, so that the official ballot will no longer be used for voting on all questions, but only for the election of officers and certain other questions for which official ballot is required by State law? This article submitted by Petition. (A 3/5 majority of those voting on the question is required.)
Let’s stop the big spending.
