Special Town Meeting Results!

In the matter to recind the purchase of the Skladany land:
146 - yes, recind
107 - no, do not recind
Approximately 450 votes were needed overall, only 253 votes were cast. Essentially the Skladany land purchase was not recinded.

In the matter to recind giving the Conservation fund 100% or $30,000 per year (whichever is less) of the Land Use tax penelty:
98 - yes, recind
68 - no, do not recind
This vote did not need a minimal # of votes cast and of that only needed a simple majority. Although the outcome was to recind, this will not take effect until April 1, 2006.

Sunday Walk Series!

The Temple Conservation Commission will be leading a series of walks on the third weekend of each month to visit some of Temple's natural areas. This is an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with some of our great outdoor resources. Get out this summer and stretch your legs!

Town Meeting's So Nice We're Going to Hold it Twice!

The snow is melting and things are heating up (and I don't just mean that the days are getting warmer).

Please check out The Soapbox to read a letter concerning the Temple Town Meeting. Did you think that the Annual Town Meeting was a one time thing? Think again! There is a good chance that the 2005 Town Meeting will be held twice this year. Perhaps you feel that the town should not buy the Skladany land or that the Con Com isn't entitled to no more then $30,000/year. You might have a chance to weigh in again on this year's Warrant Articles!

UPDATE! This issue is going to be discussed at the April 12th Selectmen's meeting. Anyone interested should attend. Also the Monadnock Ledger is featuring a story about the Special Town Meeting on the front page of the current issue.

Con Com Rumors!

Also check out the Feedback Forum for a message from Dave Repak addressing some recent rumors about the Conservation Commission.
