The meeting was opened with a Public Hearing on the new Appendix C for the General Assistance Ordinance. Lorraine noted that the only change was in housing. The hearing was closed and a Public Hearing for the November Referendum Question was opened. Ted explained that because the absentee ballots are already available in the Town Clerk’s Office, no opinions could be discussed; only questions pertinent to the referendum can be answered. Because there were some persons present that wanted discussion, Selectmen announced they would schedule another public hearing for October 25 at 8 pm when the Town Clerk’s Office is closed.
