    The Town Council opted to wait for a Town Attorney opinion on whether they can close the gate leading into the agricultural landmark Great Meadows-a request made by farmers whose property has been vandalized over the years-but an existing town ordinance at least gives them the authority to bar outside access from sunset to sunrise.
