Chilmark ballot features Prop 2.5 question


Chilmark voters who go to the polls Tuesday will be asked to exempt from the provisions of Proposition 2.5 the amounts required to pay for the bond to be issued to construct three affordable housing duplex rental buildings in the Middle Line Road affordable housing project.

In December, voters at a special town meeting authorized selectmen to borrow $1.4 million, and appropriate $600,000 from Community Preservation Act funds to build the duplexes.
