Town workers last week removed the stump of a 65-foot wooden flagpole in Baxter Park that was hit by lightning earlier this year.
Town Administrator Michael Sullivan said the pole will be replaced by a 50-foot fiberglass pole, along with eight 15-foot poles for flags representing the town, the state, and the branches of the military. Sullivan said about $15,000 to $18,000 will have to be raised to pay for the new flagpoles.
