At town meeting, Beals voters raise $109k for steel floats

by Nancy Beal

Floats for the town landing generated the most discussion at the Beals town meeting March 29, as well as the highest single appropriation. After nearly an hour’s back-and-forth over types of floats, the 16 citizens that attended the two-and-a-half-hour session voted to raise $105,000 for seven steel floats and tacked on $4,000 for their delivery. Jenny Fagonde, who served as clerk and made the motion for the floats, expressed the hope that a matching grant could be obtained that would pay for seven more floats.
