Town Meeting Warrant Article 4 Passes

Article 4 (Senior-Work-Off Exemption) passed unanimously at Special Town Meeting this November. It increases the amount of the Senior-Work-Off Exemption for eligible taxpayers for fiscal 2016 to $1,125 from the current $1,000 based on the state minimum wage of $9.00 per hour and the continued use of the 125 volunteer service hours allowed in the General Laws of Massachusetts.  The article also secures an increase for FY 17 and FY18 based on the increases to the minimum wage scheduled for FY 17 and FY 18.
