Dear Wayland voter,
Several important meetings are scheduled this week in Wayland Town Building. The most significant is a public forum on town debt Monday evening.
-- Monday, Dec. 6 Finance Committee public forum, 7 p.m. Voters authorized nearly tripling Wayland's debt to finance the new high school. Where does that leave taxpayers, and what more debt should be authorized in the near future?

-- Tuesday, Dec. 7, Public forum at 7 p.m. on efforts to plan future uses of the Loker conservation and recreation area on Route 30. Selectmen and Conservation Commission representatives will be on hand as well as the Recreation Department. A plan by a citizens' group for private development of athletic and recreational facilities was withdrawn at last May's Annual Town Meeting, pending Recreation Department studies and public input.
