Residents will have an opportunity to make comments and ask questions Monday, Feb. 22 on a proposal to reduce the size of the Cushing Board of Selectmen from five to three.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the Cushing Community Center.

On the agenda are two proposed citizen initiatives, according to a notice filed this week.

“Shall the town vote to reduce the number of selectmen from five to three and to be accomplished by the removal of seat number four and seat number five at the annual town meeting of the year 2011?” the notice states.

The second question will be: “Shall the town vote to raise and appropriate $6,200 for the purchase of a front end loader for the purpose of loading sand on town trucks in an attempt to save $15,000 in a five-year period?”

No decisions will be made at the hearing. It is being held to gather public comment.

Members of the Board of Selectmen could not be reached for comment the morning of Feb. 18.
