John Are you talking about the town warrant or some article? Small paragraph, pages of txt?????? The leaf blower article is a citizen petition, it is not sponsored by the Selectmen. They had no choice but to include it.

I believe that the selectmen can say NO and then the petitioners have to get a lot more signatures to force it onto town meeting which is what they should have done Since it failed last year. I will have to check my bylaws. In any event the Selectmen spend pages in the warrant on what may can certainly be called less important articles and the real money articles barely get a mention.
