Election Day Is Coming
Truro’s town election will take place on May 9, with voting open at the Truro Community Center (7 Standish Way) from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
There are no contested races on this year’s ballot, where eight candidates will be elected. There will, however, be a write-in election for town moderator.
Voters will also be asked to answer eight questions. Four of them are Proposition 2½ budget overrides — only three of which passed at town meeting (see related story). The measures also need to pass at town election in order to go into effect. Questions 5 through 8 ask voters to approve charter amendments, each of which also passed at town meeting.
Two DPW Open Houses
Dept. of Public Works Director Jarrod Cabral will hold two open houses on May 10 and 23, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. both days.
“The open house is an opportunity for the public to stop by and tour the existing DPW facility,” he told the Independent by email.
Cabral has been advocating for the construction of a new DPW facility, which is projected to cost about $30 million. The town’s consultants will present an updated cost analysis to the select board on May 10, Cabral said — the same day as the first open house. —Sophie Mann-Shafir
