    Sunday Jun 14 | Sentinel & Enterprise

    Gov. Charlie Baker and his economic-development team should take notice of what's happening -- or what's not happening -- at the state's would-be 352nd community known as Devens.

    Selectmen on Monday opened and closed a one-item warrant for a Special Town Meeting at 7 p.m. on June 8. A series of amendments passed at Town Meeting last week resulted in an unbalanced budget, as voters rejected a proposed structural reorganization on which the balanced budget was based on and which included cuts in some town employees' hours and salaries.
