Tewksbury residents approved several items, including the operating budget, during a lightly attended Annual Town Meeting.

The Lowell Sun reported that an operating budget of $91.9 million was approved unanimously, with a crowd of around 150 people in attendance.

Also approved, according to The Sun, was the use of $329,000 from the Sewer Enterprise fund for equipment and station upgrades, $875,000 from the Water Enterprise Fund for equipment, $116,968 from the Stabilization Fund for equipment and $1,650,000 to replace the waterline on Clark Road and Crest Road.

Special Town Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday night at 8 p.m. During that meeting, residents will be asked to approve 12 articles along with one that was originally scheduled to take place Monday.

The article pushed back until Wednesday is for an $825,000 transfer to pay for Town Hall renovations. Bids are scheduled to arrive in on Tuesday for the project, which led to the the delay in the vote.

The cable feed was terrible. Audio was unable to be heard.

yes we also have a new $70K doggie park where the Wamesit Indian sits. If this is going to be the gateway park to Tewksbury so more people will have a better image of Tewksbury. I think someone is smoking something

I always hear people complain the the Town does things 'half-a**ed'....this is a worthy project that has been neglected for YEARS allowing that beautiful Mico Kauffman sculpture to fall into disrepair which has now been refurbished thanks to the CPA....the remainder of this endeavor will be done RIGHT after careful thought and PLANNING, addressing drainage issues in that area and with irrigation so the landscaping flourishes and allows it to become a community piece we can be proud of.
