Bennington’s deliberative session drew 20 residents and resulted in one minor clerical change to a warrant article on Wednesday night, Town Administrator Kristie LaPlante said.

Deliberation about the solar tax exemption on the warrant was minimal.

“People ... see the importance of green initiatives and the value it contributes to the community,” she said.

Article 2, which deals with a zoning ordinance amendment, was changed to say that the full text is available in the town offices rather than attached to the warrant, LaPlante said.

Other articles appropriate funds towards existing fire truck, rescue vehicle, police cruiser, highway heavy equipment, mower, town buildings, revaluation and library capital reserve funds, as well as funds for maintaining roads, water infrastructure, sidewalks, and bridges, and funds for fire department protective gear and breathing apparatus.

The Selectmen and Budget Committee have recommended the town donate funds to the following nonprofits: End 68 Hours of Hunger, The Grapevine & Family Resource Center, 4 Community Volunteer Transportation Company, Court Appointed Special Advocates, Child Advocacy Center, Contoocook Housing Trust, American Red Cross, and Hundred Nights Shelter.

Voting will be held on March 10 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Pierce Elementary School.
