Selectmen Use Direct Assistance Budget as Slush Fund

At their meeting on December 28, 2018, the board of selectmen transferred $10,000 out of the Direct Assistance budget into theĀ General Government Buildings-Town Office Improvements budget. The Direct Assistance budget is intended to be used for welfare. Low income town residents can apply for heating assistance, for instance. The selectmen have decided to use those funds for new doors at the Town Offices. It was a unanimous vote.
