Southampton Override Vote Tuesday

southampton sealSOUTHAMPTON, Mass. (WGGB) — Southampton held another public meeting tonight before a proposition two and a half override vote next Tuesday.

The 1 million dollar override would raise taxes to fund the town’s operating budget. If the override fails, town officials say they will need to cut 360-thousand dollars from the budget. Town officials have said that the override is the only way to avoid cuts of over 6 percent in many departments.

Polls are open next Tuesday at the Southampton Town Hall from noon to 8 PM.  The town clerk says  they have already received a record number of requests for absentee ballots.

    I bet they could find 6 percent to cut if they were serious about it
