Let us know what you thought about the town's response to the overwhelming attendance to the Special Town Meeting last night.
After the Collins Center was packed, a line of 500 people were waiting outside the high school to enter the Special Town Meeting Monday night. And there were more coming. Because roughly 1,800 attended the meeting, town officials were forced to set up more than one hundred on the stage behind the moderator and hundreds more in the cafeteria, listening in on an audio feed. The system seemed to work and Town Meeting was able to finish without any huge incident.

Reviewing the news and events that occurred between Dec. 6 and Dec. 12.

After a recent approval by the state Department of Revenue, a new tax rate will increase the average single-family property bill by $241. Meanwhile, Andover's state Rep.-elect Paul Adams defended himself against allegations brought on by an Eagle-Tribune article regarding his past accomplishments, calling the piece "slanderous" and authored by a "rouge reporter." The town moderator didn't need to take a hand count during a vote on a $44 million replacement of the Bancroft Elementary School to know that it passed.
