Hot topic: Voters will decide whether to purchase about 4.5 acres of land off Sanborn Road to build a new police station. As part of the warrant article, voters will be asked to authorize the board of selectmen to take out a $350,000 bond to pay for the land. The article requires a two-thirds majority ballot vote and is recommended by the select board and the budget committee.

If that article is approved, voters will also consider a request for $267,000 to develop architectural and engineering plans for a new police station. The select board would bond the total cost, meaning a two-thirds majority vote is needed for the article to pass.

Budget: The proposed operating budget of $5.6 million is up $26,430 over last year’s approved budget.

Noteworthy articles: Voters will be asked to set aside money in various capital reserve funds, including $15,000 for highway equipment; $94,000 for roads, bridges and sidewalks; and $5,000 toward property revaluation. They will also consider whether to accept ownership of half of Island Park but only if Northfield residents vote in favor of the transfer.

When and where: Tilton’s annual meeting will be held Saturday at 8 a.m. at Winnisquam Regional High School on West Main Street.
