Prop 2.5 offers a choice

To the Editor:

Edgartown is once again asking voters for more money in the form of Proposition 2.5 overrides. This year the total is $820,000.

Once approved, in most cases the hike becomes part of the town’s annual budget forever. And each year our tax bills go up. I believe this year the average bill will increase by $360 — great.

Proposition 2.5 overrides can be defeated on town meeting floor on Tuesday and by voting no on the ballot in the privacy of the voting booth on Thursday, April 14.

And on a separate note, I want to thank Eversource for the new poles, power lines, and for trimming the trees. I think I lost power once for a few minutes. Great job.
