The town of Littleton is working hard to create their town report and are close to finalizing their town budget for the upcoming year, luckily things are shaping up nicely for their town.

With only a three cent increase in taxes expected from members of the town, there are a lot of development plans set in place for after town meeting day. As the town manager of Littleton, Andrew Dorsett would tell you, there are big plans set in motion for their town that are dependent on voters. "We have at least five-million dollars in projects that we will be able to pay, for the most part, without the use of tax dollars from members of the town. We will be remaking roads throughout the town that need to be renovated, plus we have some buildings that are due for renovation." Dorsett explained, "Lucky for us we have some grants and funds that we will be able to use to help pay for these projects, we should only need about five-hundred thousand from the town."
While most of these projects are new and exciting for the town, there is one hot button item that has been discussed by the town that relates back to 2014. This is the acquisition of a land parcel located in the Littleton Industrial sector. As it stands today, the town was ready to sell the land to the L.I.D.C. corporation back in 2014; however, due to an error that was made in the language of the proposal, the town was never given the opportunity to sell the land parcel. "there were some errors in the language that caused the transfer to not be able to take place... and so this year we are putting it back on the ballot... and we are asking the voters to approve this transfer of this industrial parcel to L.I.D.C. for future development."
