A referendum vote that would have established a town charter commission fell just short of passage on Tuesday. The final tally was 387 in favor of creating a charter commission and 391 opposed.
In the race for two open seats on the Select Board, George Colby and Tammy Donovan defeated Peter Bragdon and Stephen Hathorne. Colby and Donovan won three-year terms and will replace outgoing board members Lenora Conger and Steven Libby.
Voters also approved the MSAD 15 budget by a comfortable margin, and elected Misty Coolidge, Nichole Stevens, and Laura Jane Sturgis unopposed to three open seats on the school board.
Full election results, as posted on the town’s website:
Professional organizers can’t hold a candle to the Friends of the New Gloucester Public Library.
Member Beverly Cadigan, chronicling the process of sorting the books that are contributed to the library, says the librarians first categorize the donated books, retaining some of them to add to the inventory. The remainder are put in crates and brought down into the labyrinth of rooms found in the library’s basement.
Deep into hour three of their April 8 meeting, the Board of Selectmen discussed the FY19 NG Fire and Rescue budget to be given to the Budget Committee for its April 11 meeting, and shed light on possible changes ahead for the department. The Fire and Rescue budgets, now combined in a single “Public Safety” account, #117, have remained uncertain as the board considered options—and costs—for providing 24/7 emergency response coverage. The board had previously set a placeholder amount of $700,000 while it deliberated. The new FY19 figure will be $643,112. The Fire and Rescue budget this year was $380,000.
