The Saugus Annual Town Meeting came to a close last night. Most of the articles were bookkeeping sorts of formalities, but there were extended discussions on both the fate of the old Police / Fire Station (it was referred back to the Town Manager who will study the issue further) and a proposal to require a public Board of Health meeting prior to either the expansion of an existing solid waste facility or the creation of a new one (it was approved; the Board of Health will have to hold such meetings).

Saugus Annual Town Meeting highlights include the passing of a balanced (albeit extremely tight) budget. Most departments (including the School Department) got level funded (in terms of dollars), but level funding still lead to quite a few layoffs.

It's been a long time since the last update on the Saugus SETI team has been posted here. Saugus area machines have already contributed over 2050 results, utilizing nearly five years' worth of CPU time that would have otherwise been wasted. New participants are welcome; the project itself has only just started a new phase so there is still time to make a difference.

Saugus Annual Town Meeting highlights include the passing of a few articles concerning revolving funds covering topics like the landfill closing costs, the water system cross-connection program, and the self-sufficient recreational programs.
