Goffstown Warrant Article
It's Article 31 that is interesting. Just like the Rindge petitioned article, there's no provision for the acceptance of emergency funds. At least Rindge stipulated that grants or funds would have to be presented and accepted once a year at town meeting.
In Goffstown there's no explanation of what happens next. The way this is worded suggests that the town will not accept any money from any source. That would include a wealthy donor who wanted to help fund a town project. Tough luck, pal - we don't want your money!
The voters are also likely to be befuddled.
