Town Meeting day in about 100 towns across NH
From staff and wire reports
It's Town Meeting day in New Hampshire.
About 100 towns are deciding on issues Tuesday.
In Plaistow, voters will consider plans for an $11 million police station to replace an aging, crowded building.
It's not the only town with a safety building in voter's hands. In Hudson, voters are deciding on a $2.1 million proposal for a new fire station on Lowell Road. Bow will take up a warrant Wednesday night for a new safety complex in that town.
In Epping, ordinances to restrict where alternative treatment centers and controlled substance distribution centers are on the ballot. Both have to do with a proposal to locate a marijuana dispensary in the town.
In Fitzwilliam, residents will consider challenging the proposed Kinder Morgan gas pipeline. It would stretch across 70 miles of New Hampshire, mostly along an existing power line corridor, to bring gas to markets in New England that have limited pipeline capacity and high costs. Opposition includes fears the route would cause environmental harm and lower property values, and slow investment in renewable energy sources.
And in a vote that spans three towns, a new track at Oyster River High School is on the ballots.
