Selectmen To Meet To Schedule Special Town Meeting: Wilmington Selectmen will meet this upcoming Monday, November 6 at 7pm for the sole purpose of choosing a date to hold a Special Town Meeting to consider amending the zoning bylaws to allow detox centers in only general industrial zones.  A campaign, led by Selectman Mike McCoy, was successful in getting more than the necessary signatures to call for the Special Town Meeting.
