Split decision on overrides in Berlin

Posted by Ralph Ranalli May 16, 2007 07:35 AM


Residents approved one of three one-year overrides to pay for capital projects and re-elected all incumbents in Monday’s election.

A request to spend just under $10,000 to weatherize and install storm windows on the second floor of town hall was approved by a vote of 146 to 109, Town Clerk Eloise Salls said.

A measure that would have raised $6,000 to maintain athletic fields on South Common failed by a vote of 147 to 107, however, and proposal for $10,000 to replace tables and chairs in the public safety training room was shot down with a vote of 174 to 82.

All candidates ran unopposed and were reelected to office. Of the town’s 1,801 registered voters, 261 cast ballots.
