MEREDITH — With the elections out of the way on Tuesday, the business portion of Town Meeting will take place tonight at 7 o'clock in the Inter-Lakes Junior-Senior High School gymnasium.
Voters will be asked to approve a $7.6 million bond for a new public works building that would replace the current 7,000-square-foot steel-frame operations building, built in 1965. The proposed building would have 12,839 square feet and would address a number of safety issues.
Warrant Article 14 would move forward the renovation of the Benjamin M. Smith Memorial Library with a $400,000 appropriation from the town’s unassigned fund balance to pay for the final architectural design.
Meredith’s basic proposed operating budget is $14.5 million, while transfers from trust funds will bring the total figure to $15.7 million.
Meredith also has a petitioned article that would allow keno games within the town. Another petitioned article asks for voters to appropriate $25,000 in matching funds to offset the cost of restoring the Glenn Hart Memorial Skateboard Park.
