At Issue In a Massachusetts Town — The Value of Two-Thirds

April 22nd, 2010 04:09 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

An anonymous reader writes “In Truro, Massachusetts (a town on Cape Cod), a zoning decision came up for vote, where the results were 136 for, 70 against. The vote required 2/3 approval to pass. The Town Clerk and Town Accountant believe that since .66 * 206 is less than 136, the vote passes. However, an ‘anonymous caller’ noted that a more accurate value of 2/3 would require 137 (or perhaps even 138 votes) for the measure to be considered passed. The MA Secretary of State and State Attorney General are hard at work to resolve this issue.”
