China selectmen held a brief special meeting Monday afternoon, March 8, at which they unanimously approved the warrant for the June 8 annual town business meeting.
Another unanimous vote authorized Town Manager Becky Hapgood to create and mail to all residents an explanation of the questions to be voted on. The mailing will be in addition to the twice-a-month mailings from the town office; the cost is estimated at between $500 and $600.
Hapgood plans to send out the special mailing the first or second week in April, so residents can read it before the April 26 public hearing on the June 8 ballot questions. The mailing will include instructions for participating remotely in the public hearing.
Hapgood plans also to put information on the town website, china.gov.office.com.
The June 8 vote will be by written ballot. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the former portable classroom behind the town office. Instructions for voting by absentee ballot will be available well in advance of the meeting.
The next two regular China selectmen’s meeting are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Mon
