2017, THIS YEAR...ATBM had no quorum (107 present instead of 130); Nina calls in the numbers to FORUM

At Referendum 2017 all three budgets passed with 580 voting:
507-71 (2 not voting) - Town;
483-97 - School
493-85 - (2 not voting) - Capital
------


2016 REFERENDUM FOLLOWED A.T.B.M. - THAT HAD A QUORUM THIS YEAR! 

All three budgets pass:  533 - 40 (Town);  509 - 63 (School);  526 - 47 (Capital). 
Referendum votes from after A.T.B.M. plus Thursday's Referendum voting = 575

Bravo Nina and Dennis for rebounding from having school budget go down in 2015!!!

TRIAL ON LAWSUIT ON FAA OVER - NO APPEAL HEARD AT SUPREME COURT
FAA re-routing of flights over CT - what did you say?  What was that???

Transit Oriented Development (T.O.D.) and other outside funding
Will Weston try for a grant to unify circulation in and around its government-commercial center in 2017?
How about safety?
"Stimulous Package" focus on transportation or cities be useful for Weston?

Energy, etc.:
EVERSOURCE is the new name for CL&P/NU.
