Sangerville residents vote down traffic light

SANGERVILLE – Drivers will have to use their own judgment when passing through the four-way intersection of Route 23 after residents voted at town meeting not to reinstall the blinking traffic lights that were destroyed by a pulp truck seven months after they were installed.

Voters on March 31 also authorized the town to buy a Public Works truck at a cost no greater than $82,000.

The approved net budget was $906,056, up $249,528 from last year. The town is still waiting for the school budget in June.

Residents were asked whether the town should keep the former Abbie Fowler School as a rental business or sell it.

After some discussion, officials said that they had the right to sell it, but would hold a town meeting before taking action.

Charles Cleaves was elected to a three-year term on the Board of Selectmen, and Amy Tracy and Jimmy Bell Jr. were elected to three-year terms on the SAD 4 board of directors.
