Issue No. 17: Our recap of the Annual and Special Town Meeting on May 8 — 3.5 hours of mostly swift and unanimous passing of articles concerning the FY24 budget, wastewater, housing and first responders. The fish ladder at Pilgrim Lake and Veteran's Park Memorial drew passionate discussion.

Issue No. 16 — a preview of Town Meeting on May 8, 2023 — takes a closer look at the opening pages of the Warrant and how they offer a mini-Master Class in Municipal Finance as Orleans voters head into FY2024 with 66 Warrant articles to consider.
Issue No. 11 offers a deep dive into what’s public (and what’s not) in Orleans: beaches, trails, ponds, marshes, town-owned conservation areas, town landings, and Orleans Conservation Trust (OCT) land. We explain the rules of engagement—and describe what can happen when those rules are ignored.
Issue No.8: Voters approve universal preschool, a new parking lot at Nauset Beach, dredging of Rock Harbor, and a feasibility study for a new fire station—though the discussion has wild twists and turns.
Issue No.2: We let you know how things shook out at the meeting: Hello, pot shops! And voters green-lit a feasibility study for the Governor Prence Properties, but said “no” to exploring the possibility of a Community Center for now.
