The deadline to register to vote at special town meeting is Wednesday, Oct. 11. Truro residents can register online, by mail, or in person at town hall. Voters will be asked to weigh in on 15 articles including use of the Walsh property, the local comprehensive plan, and the dept. of public works facility upgrade.
There is no special town election currently scheduled, but the town plans to hold one if any article involving borrowing passes at town meeting, said Town Manager Darrin Tangeman.
Three articles in that category appear on the warrant: one would authorize borrowing $1.4 million for roofing, heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning repairs at Truro Central School. The other two are related to the DPW upgrade.
