Motel article remains on Lenox town warrant

To the editor:

To Lenox voters: Article 21 on the warrant for the Town Meeting on Thursday, May 5, pertains to a tax write-off (or special tax assessment) on the redevelopment of an existing motel. If this article passes, the developer will get a tax break (gift) for 10 years. When someone pays less, someone else pays more — simple economics.

Your vote is important. Contrary to what some voters think, this article is on the warrant. It has not been "shelved" and can only be withdrawn by the petitioner which, to date, has not happened.
