3. Article #46 (Ward Street Lights)
• Order of Articles. The Committee discussed what its recommendation would be, were a motion made at Town Meeting to change the order of articles from that published in the Warrant.
The Committee voted unanimously to recommend that articles be considered in the order published.
• Paper Ballot. The Committee debated whether to call for a ballot vote following the mandatory voice vote on Article #46.
