Recreation field warrant generates discussion in Windham
Recreation Commissioner Dennis Senibaldi said the town hadn't expanded its public playing area since the opening of Griffin Park a dozen years ago, though recreation programs continue to grow.
The item was moved forward, unchanged, to the March ballot.
Also approved for the ballot was a citizen's petition article for a $860,000 bonded purchase of the historic Campbell Farm on Kendall Pond Road. The site would remain a protected conservation spot, with the town making annual payments of $85,000 toward the bond over the next decade.
"This farm has been in Windham since the 1700s," Dunn said. "This property has enormous potential for recreation and education."
"This is the year of contracts," said Selectman Roger Hohenberger, noting this three-year contract includes a 2 percent cost-of-living raises for the municipal workers.
Hohenberger noted the firefighters haven't seen a cost-of-living raise in three years.
"This is a great opportunity to get us back on track this year," said Selectman Al Letizio.
Article 29, Windham's proposed $13,461,811 operating budget, represents a $793,939 increase over the current year's budget.
