FARMINGTON — A meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday at the municipal building has been canceled.

The meeting was to present information on a proposed firetruck purchase and changes to the town’s Zoning Ordinance that would include definitions and other details relating to homeless shelters.

“It’s a bit complicated,” Town Manager Christian Waller said Oct. 17. “Long story short, there isn’t going to be a public hearing.”

A special town meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, downstairs in the Community Center to vote on those articles as well as the purchase of property next to the Public Works facility.

Waller said a hearing isn’t required because the vote at the special town meeting will not be by secret ballot, and a hearing was held on March 10 with the Zoning Board and nothing has changed in the ordinance since then. The only reason a hearing would be needed was if seven days notice hadn’t been given for the special town meeting, he added.
