    In conjunction with the week-long run of the classic film, Gone With the Wind, the Edmond Town Hall managers arranged for an encampment of the men and women of Battery B of the First Rhode Island Light Artillery on the front lawn of town hall. The brigade pitched camp on Saturday morning and settled in for the whole weekend, offering passersby and moviegoers a glimpse of life in the army camps during the Civil War.

    The town meeting to vote on a proposed $150,000 appropriation fro an E911 emergency dispatch system was set for Thursday at 8 pm at the Newtown High School auditorium. The proposal calls for having a single E911center located in the police department, with two dispatchers at all times — one to handle police calls, the other to handle ambulance and fire calls.

    The town government has a new phone system. A new feature of the new system allows people to call the various departments directly, by dialing 270 and then the four-digit extension for that particular office. The town continues to use SNET equipment for its outside lines, and for its emergency dispatching system (which is expected to be revised by SNET in about six months, so the town can have an Enhanced-911 system for handling emergency calls.)

    There will be a referendum on the town’s $33.4 million budget. The budget had been approved by a 95 to 43 vote at the Town Meeting, April 25, but a petition drive led by Camille Taylor and Viola Murray will give voters a chance to change their minds. Over 1,000 signatures were collected.
