Clown show tonight!

Grab your popcorn and soda, folks. Its the third Tuesday of the month, and that means clown show! Agenda here. Featured event:
Fourth Order of Business: Order #77 - Review and act upon amending the subdivision ordinance to clarify the authority of the Planning Board in imposing certain fire safety provisions in new subdivisions.
Watch in amazement as amateur lawyers use imaginary legal theories to dismiss the advice of a respected town attorney, ignore the urgent recommendations of your Fire Department, and cripple your Planning Board's independence while putting the interests of private developers ahead of public safety.

If this thing passes (and it probably will), try not to think too much about the future of the town you call home. And make sure your fire extinguishers work.
