Expanding Fryeburg's TAX BASE

Fryeburg, spread the costs by expanding the tax base

Last Thursday we held our annual town meeting at the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center. Most of the articles passed easily and things went smoothly except for a few articles which were questioned about their cost.

The article asking to spend up to $700,000 to build a new town office and police station at 395 Portland Street, was rejected by secret ballot, 100 to 31 votes. Even though I voted for the purchase, I understand that most tax payers are reluctant to fork over their hard-earned money — but we need to upgrade Fryeburg’s infrastructure — now. It will only get more expensive as the years roll on.

We need to find a way to give our town the tools it needs to operate smoothly....
