The town has limited bond authorization left to buy open space, about $1.8 million, Marquis said. He said he spoke yesterday with Planning and Human Services Director Karen Nelson about having the Open Space and Recreation Advisory Committee meet and give him advice on potential uses of the land.
Marquis said if selectmen were to discuss purchasing the property, it would meet in executive session to protect the town’s interests. The Open Meeting Law permits such private discussions when considering real estate purchases.
