The following message is from the Town of Reading in relation to a survey opportunity for our community.
In October 2016 the Board of Selectmen (BOS) placed a Ballot Question in front of Reading voters, asking for an operational Override, for the first time since 2003. About 37% of Reading voters turned out at the polls and by a margin of 59%-41% voted NO to this question at a Special Election. The BOS is considering placing another operational Override question before the voters at the annual Town Election in April 2018. To help guide their deliberations, the Selectmen are asking for your assistance by completing the following survey link below. The survey is anonymous, and space is provided at the end to ask questions or bring ideas forward. Paper copies of the survey are available at the Reading Town Hall, Reading Public Library, and Reading Senior Center.
Thank you very much for your consideration and for your assistance.
