Ruth Douglas made a motion to accept the article as read. It was seconded by George Tinkham. David Hague addressed the public. David explained that the C.I.P program provides a way for the town to save money for anticipated expenses, eliminating the need to borrow funds or lease equipment. Rosemary Kulow expressed that even though this is a good idea, it should be voted down. She stated there are too many variables this year with the uncertainty of the effect of the re-evaluation on property owner’s taxes and the people’s initiative that will be voted on in November. There being no further discussion, the motion carried.
