Sugar Hill eyes money to fight Northern Pass
According to the warrant article, the $10,000 fund would be administered by the Select Board “for the purpose of financing legal expenses and other costs incurred by the town in advocating the town’s opposition to the Northern Pass project.”
Another article asks voters to authorize the Select Board to accept donations, grants or gifts, in any amount, to be used for the fund.
Other states require developers to provide “municipal intervener” funds that essentially help cities and towns oppose the project the developer is proposing.
“In New Hampshire, towns and their residents are forced to foot the bill,” said Susan Schibanoff, a Northern Pass opponent who lives in nearby Easton.
