FALMOUTH – Town meeting kicks off tonight in Falmouth, with residents considering a 42-article warrant.

One of the notable articles pertains to the zoning of the Cavossa property on Route 151. The owner, Carl Cavossa, would like his property re-zoned to allow for trash trucks for his disposal company to park there. But some residents are opposed to the plan.

“People who live in Ballymeade are concerned about the possibility of odors from garbage that’s contained in the trucks. That seems to be the biggest concern,” said Board of Selectmen Chair Mary Pat Flynn.

Voters will also consider banning plastic bags. If Falmouth were to adopt restrictions on plastic bags, they would join Provincetown as the second town on the Cape to do so.

“Many people are very much for it,” Flynn said, “but then there are those who object to that, so it’s possible that maybe it could be amended.”

Town meeting starts tonight at 7 o’clock at the Lawrence School on Lakeview Avenue.
