Message From Moderator Mark DiSalvo: Protocols and Layout for the June 16, 2020 Town Meeting

Dear Neighbors:
 
I wrote in my annual Moderator Message that these were curious times.  They require us to have an outdoor Town Meeting – the first in our history since 1646. Please see the Protocols necessary and the Field Layout. It is designed to be safe, fair, open and efficient. All who wish to express an opinion have the opportunity to do so in the legislative function of our government called Town Meeting. Please RSVP – I  look forward to seeing you at Joe Walsh Stadium on the football field at NAHS on Tuesday June 16 at 5:00PM.

Mark DiSalvo

Town Meeting Warrant Article of the Day – Article 24: Transfer funds from Free Cash to Fiscal Year 2020 School Department Revolving Fund

Town Meeting Warrant Article of the Day 

Article 24: Transfer funds from Free Cash to Fiscal Year 2020 School Department Revolving Fund

This article transfers $250,000 from Free Cash to the School Department’s Revolving Fund.  These funds represent a reimbursement that the Town receives for the Medicare expenses paid by the School Department in FY20.  This allows the School Department to receive and use that reimbursement.  The School-Based Medicaid Program (SBMP) allows local education agencies (LEAs), such as cities and towns, charter schools, regional school districts, and vocational/technical schools to seek cost-based reimbursement for providing medically necessary Medicaid services (direct services) to eligible MassHealth-enrolled children as well as administrative activities such as outreach and activities that support direct service delivery.
