Sandown voters to decide on new police station

“They had never come before us before,” Brown said. “They informed us that they were asking for $5,000 from some of the bigger towns in the area. We felt just because we were smaller, we wouldn’t be able to afford it.”

Voters Saturday also amended an article which would have fined residents $25 for not having visible reflective address numbers on their homes for emergency personnel. It was amended to $0.

“We realized there were just too many discrepancies in the article,” Brown said. “Common sense should tell people whether they could see their house.”

The $3.4 million budget was moved to the ballot without any discussion. The default budget is $3.3 million.
