Article 3 and 4: Authorization to Accept and Grant Easements

These articles allow the Town and School Committee to accept and grant easements for any public purpose.  An easement is a right to use someone else’s land for a particular purpose.  The Town often has to accept easements for purposes like extensions of sidewalks or for utility purposes.  The Town may grant an easement to a utility company or the Commonwealth.
