Use of comma

Is it me, or is the comma use in this picture seem weird?

 

It is the headline from a local paper and the grammar on it just looks wrong. It's as if there was something else written before Easton because, IMO, there really should not be "selectmen, too," in that headline. If it were me, I'd take out the "too" and write "Easton selectmen will urge..." because they talk about it in the story.
