Piermont — Most articles passed at the floor portion of Town Meeting, including a new plow truck for Piermont.

The purchase of the $134,000 plow truck with sander involves borrowing $99,000, and a first-year payment of $23,255. Money from a equipment reserve fund, resale of the old truck and a highway block grant will also go toward the purchase.

Voters in Piermont on Saturday also approved a municipal operating budget of $955,300, with $951,800 to be raised by taxes.

The only measure to be defeated, according to Town Moderator Joyce Tompkins, was a petitioned warrant article to hire a building inspector. It failed by voice vote after some discussion, she said.

Piermont holds its annual School District meeting Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Piermont Village School.

At the end of the meeting, resident Tony Smith offered a question as to whether the federal government should scrap a provision known as the Dickey Amendment, which prevents the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from doing research on gun violence. Tompkins, the moderator, said about 45 residents supported such research, and only one was opposed.
