Residents voted down funding for a new fire station on Town Meeting Day.

Residents voted 139-167 on an article asking to spend up to $85,000 which would have gone towards financing a $1.2 million fire and emergency operations center. They approved the $105,297 budget for the fire department by a vote of 226-84. Residents also approved $17,850 for the fire department's truck replacement fund by a vote of 240-73.

They approved the town budget of $205,129 by a vote of 280-26 and the highway budget of $571,994 by a vote of 280-29.

For elections, Chris Koteas ran unopposed for Brian Shatney's three-year seat on the Select Board after Shatney decided not to seek reelection. Robin Durkee was elected to finish out the last year of a three-year term as Town Clerk.
