Town meeting update
Provincetown will be the first city in the Outer Cape to hold its annual municipal meeting on Monday April 4 at City Hall. After two years of reducing terms of reference to shorten outdoor meetings inspired by the pandemic, the city expects this meeting to be important.
Forty-eight articles appear in the 50-page terms of reference. If you want a preview, Monday, March 14 will be a good day to tune in to board and committee meetings to hear what officials have to say on certain financial articles.
The finance committee will review the proposed budget at 7:00 p.m. with the select board. The city’s recommended operating budget for fiscal year 2023 is $32 million, up 4.4% from the current year.
Voters must also vote on an $8.5 million debt exclusion proposal to build a new police station. Because it exceeds the limits of Proposition 2½, it must also be approved in the May 10 municipal elections. A story on page A1 goes into more detail.
At 3 p.m., the Public Landscape Committee will discuss its recommendation on proposed landscaping and other amenities at East End Waterfront Park, also known as Cannery Wharf Park, at 387 Commercial St. The city purchased this former parking lot in 2019 at Elena Hall before her death. Section 8 of the mandate will ask voters for $1.8 million to landscape the area and build a seawall, pathways, bike racks and other features. This project must also be approved in the election as a debt exclusion.
The last day to register to vote at the municipal assembly is March 15. Voters must register for the election by April 20. —KC Myers
