MONKTON — Monkton residents will assemble for the annual town meeting this Saturday, March 4, at 10 a.m. at Monkton Central School to vote on nine town and five school articles.

Residents will be voting on the $1.4 million municipal spending figure. The selectboard broke out spending thus:

Australian ballot voting will take place on Tuesday, March 7, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the town office.

SHOREHAM — Shoreham residents at their town meeting Monday evening will be asked to borrow up to $140,000 over five years to finance a 2017 Western Star Truck, and will consider selling a 0.75-acre, town-owned lot to generate more money for a key reserve fund.

The parcel in question is located south of the former Newton Academy. It has access to municipal water and wastewater services, thereby enhancing its value as a building lot. Proceeds from the sale would be placed into the town’s Building and Grounds Repair Reserve Fund.
