The first is this Thursday at 7pm Town Hall. It is the 2015 Budget/Roads/Warrant public hearing.
The latest draft of the Town Warrant can be found here on the Town website. Of particular interest is the Moultonboro Police Dept. Union contract. Note that the numbers are blank on Article 6 until the agreement is finalized. Article 10 is an unusual one in that it is asking the Legislative body to ratify 21 ordinances that were adopted by the Selectmen over the years. The explanation on the warrant is as follows: "The vagueness of the statute(s) with respect to whether it is the legislative or governing body which is authorized to adopt ordinance on behalf of “the Town” is such that the SelectBoard erred in adopting the above ordinances. The cure to this error is for the Town Meeting to now ratify those adoptions." How this "error" was discovered is equally vague. Town ordinances can be found here. Some of these ordinances go back to the 1970's so I question the interpretation of Town Counsel of the necessity to "ratify" these ordinances in 2015. Nonetheless, it does assure final closure that all are now proper.
A "draft" of a petitioned warrant article was submitted to the BoS on January 22nd. ( The video of that brief public portion can be found here.) Per the draft minutes of the meeting: "Joe Cormier asked for a few minutes and spoke to BroadBand. He also presented to the Selectmen a draft citizens petition relative to eliminating the position of Town Administrator effective May 1, 2015 and transferring the duties of the position to the Board of Selectmen. "
The second date per the flyer below is the annual "Meet the Candidates Night" moderated by Town Moderator Jerry Hopkins. A snow date has been set for March 8th.
