Sandisfield will vote on pot sales, some financial maintenance and a new dump truck with a plow | South Berkshires
SANDISFIELD — A 3% tax on gross cannabis sales, some financial maintenance and the purchase of a new truck are up for a vote at a special town hall on Saturday.
Other articles on the warrant seek to tap into nearly $200,000 in unspent school money that has been returned to the city. Uses would include some city wages, tuition and transportation for a student to vocational school, and $80,000 for a small dump truck with a plow to replace one that has reached the end of its useful life.
Another item put to a vote would require that all city fees and revenues be collected by the treasurer, “and not benefit any individual.”
Here are some other things about the city’s special meeting mandate:
• Should the city establish a tax holiday program for veterans beginning in fiscal year 2023?
• Should the clerk’s office remain closed on Saturdays?
• Should the clerk be appointed rather than elected?
Authorities scrapped an article seeking to abandon part of a road that currently serves as a driveway to a residence, but is maintained by the city and “has fallen into disrepair and no longer serves the public interest.”
