Hancock town meeting preview 2020

HANCOCK — Hancock voters will convene at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 3, at their Route 100 town hall for their annual town meeting.
After going through the election of the 13 town officers enumerated on meeting warning, considering the $27,784 in appropriations for 14 social service agencies (with the largest by far being $19,380 for the White River Valley Ambulance) and hearing reports from town officers, residents will consider the town budget proposal.
The selectboard has proposed municipal spending of $378,323 for the coming fiscal year. That represents a decrease of less than 1% from the amount approved at last year’s town meeting.
Town Clerk Jody Troumbley said there were no notable changes in the budget proposal.
One item that the selectboard will mention in its report is that board members are considering “throwing up” Texas Falls Road beyond the last private property. This would have the affect of turning over maintenance of the road to the National Forest Service. In the town report, board members stressed that this idea was still in its early stages.
Among the town officers up for election is one selectboard member — Jack Ross.
Troumbley is looking for a relatively quick assembly.
“This could perhaps even be a record short meeting,” she said. “It looks to be really quiet.”
