PROVINCETOWN – About 250 residents turned out in Provincetown last night to consider a 15 Article Warrant at Special Town Meeting.

Voters easily approved a measure banning the use of plastic bags by town businesses.

A question authorizing the town to purchase the Hall Property failed as it did not get a necessary two thirds majority and a proposal to allow town officials such as the police chief, fire chief and town manager to reside in a different town also failed.
