Well, that’s embarrassing (see correction) on page 2. I got it exactly wrong. Geesh.
Okay, on that note, we’re still in budget-numbers-crunch mode (see page 3).
Fairhaven is grappling with a $450,000 deficit. It can get confusing with all the different ideas on how to cut that $450,00 from the budget.
Town Meeting is in three weeks (5/6), so there’s still some time to learn more about how a Proposition 2/12 override really happens, works, and what it means for the future. The reality is that there is no such thing as a painless budget cut, especially when it’s $450K.
We’ll be writing more on this in the next few weeks so you can be informed before Town Meeting. Find out who your TM reps are and let them know how you feel.
Our cover story is one of my absolute favorites. It was cold out there, but hot chocolate helped and, of course, the kids were just jumping up and down, so they stayed warm. See page 12 for some fun pictures.
Acushnet is moving along with the PJ Keating permit application process. See page 14 for that.
And, while we’re on Acushnet, candidates can get free publicity (see page14) to let voters know what you’re about. Of course, we happily take paid ads, too. Ahem.
Speaking of which, be sure to let our advertisers know you saw their ads in the Neighb News. Use their coupons so they know you’re paying attention (yes, right, you guessed it, I forgot to use on this week… oops).
And feel free to support this little venture with a donation. We need advertisers AND reader support to keep this baby going.
Until next week then…see ya,
Glory to Ukraine!
Glory to the Heroes!
