SPRINGFIELD — Town meeting voters on Saturday passed the $1,213,755 budget recommended by the town budget committee on a unanimous voice vote.
Residents also approved a $35,940 three-year lease for a new police cruiser, and $99,000 to purchase a new multi-use rescue vehicle for the fire department through municipal bonds.
Voters unanimously agreed to spend $19,000 to repair the steeple and paint windowsills at the Town Hall.
And they approved spending $30,000 for the planning board to complete an assessment of the town's wetlands regulations, contingent on the town receiving a grant in that amount from New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority's community planning program.
