Richmond voters ratify town budget

June 12, 2014

RICHMOND — Voters approved the $23.4 million town budget for 2014-15 at Monday night’s Financial Town Meeting at Richmond Elementary School. Of the town’s 6,066 registered voters, 73, or 1.2 percent, came to cast ballots.
In addition to the budget, voters approved two bond resolutions.
The first resolution was approved for a $2.41 million bond that included road repaving, equipment for the Department of Public Works (DPW), building improvements, and acquisition of open space. For road repairs, $380,000 was allocated to Lewiston Avenue and $850,000 to James Trail. DPW equipment included two dump trucks with plows and sanders at $175,000 each. And a wood chipper for $80,000. Two bays will be added to the DPW’s garage for $250,000, and $500,000 was allocated toward the purchase of open and recreational space.
