In 2013, voters narrowly defeated a new collective-bargaining agreement with the union representing fire, highway and transfer station employees, leading to a recount that upheld the result.
Residents petitioned for a recount and it will take place Tuesday at 3 p.m., according to Town Clerk Judith White. She said she is confident the recount, as was the case with last year’s recount, will uphold the tally recorded by the town’s voting machines.
She said in her 16 years as town clerk and in other recounts, the machines have been proven correct. Should the public works/highway building article fail in the recount, the result of the recount can be appealed to Grafton County Superior Court.
“The building is a mid-1950s steel-frame Butler building that has not been substantially improved since then. It’s functionally out of date,” said Moody, “and needs to be improved for energy-conservation purposes.”
Not only was heating oil cheaper 60 years ago, municipal vehicles were also smaller, said Moody, “and now we’re having to store some of our equipment outside.”
He acknowledged that the committee didn’t consider building a structure that could accommodate the public works as well as the parks and recreation and cemetery-maintenance departments under one roof as some residents at Town Meeting had wanted.
