Home Rule Petition Supported
April 13, 2018
Martha’s Vineyard – A first step toward banning moped rentals was taken by Oak Bluffs Town Meeting voters with the passage of a home rule petition that could ultimately give the town the authority to enact such a ban. The petition now goes to the state legislature. If approved, it returns to the town for a second vote, likely next year.
Also approved was a list of capital improvement projects, allocated $63,000 in town funding for regional social services and a $30.3 million budget, the largest in the history of the town.
