Machias board, budget committee clash over sending police budget to voters

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Machias voters will not be asked to weigh in on two proposed budget items for the Machias Police Department, following a series of tense discussions between members of the Machias selectboard and budget committee.

The Machias Board of Selectmen last week voted 3 to 1 against asking voters to consider funding for a school resource officer and part-time police department administrator. The budget committee voted 2-1 in favor of putting the items to a town vote.
