3 Firefighters and police would like to see visible house numbers in order to reduce reponse times and possibly save a life.
3 Increases in the town budget for 2007 are largely attributed to health insurance, negotiated wage increases, an additional police officer. Also, the highway department was confronted with soaring asphalt costs.
