One calls for spending more than $600,000 for a fire truck; another calls for a 5 percent cut in the town budget.
Selectman Douglas Viger said the Budget Committee also is opposed to the proposed spending cut.
While each selectman expressed his strong opposition to the reduction, Selectman Robert Haverty invited citizens to vote him out of office if they disagreed.
“It would be irresponsible for us to consider this,” Haverty said.
Parks and Recreation Director Brian Johnson briefed selectmen on a proposed $40,000 playground project, planned this year, for Veterans Memorial Park.
Johnson said it would be funded from a combination of a grant and revenue from charity gaming money.
“I think that’s important,” Selectman William McDevitt said, stressing none of the money was from property tax dollars.
Planning Director Jeff Gowan met with selectmen, telling them town officials will be reporting to them in the spring about possible address and road name changes intended to remove confusion for emergency 911 responders.
Gowan indicated there would be an opportunity for public input.
