SPECIAL TOWN MEETING
Voters are encouraged to attend the Special Town Meeting which will be held at the Shapleigh Town Hall on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 7 pm. The purpose of the meeting is to vote on whether or not to appropriate money from undesignated funds for a contract deputy sheriff. Currently Acton is also seeking to have a special town meeting tonight for the same purpose. If both towns vote to do this it will be a sharing of contract deputy services of 40 hours per week divided between Shapleigh and Acton at a cost of $20,000 for each town. If Acton votes it down then Shapleigh has an article which asks for $40,000 for the whole cost. This has been made possible because of a federal grant which was awarded to the York County Sheriff's Dept.
The contract would be for 4 years, 3 of those being at the cost indicated above. In the 4th year the town would be funding the entire amount .The vehicle which would have been supplied by the Sheriff's Dept for the first 3 years would then belong half to Shapleigh and half to Acton.
FMI call the Selectmen at 636-2843 ext 401.
