  13. Hope voters reject ecomaine, pass $778,756 town budgetRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 21, 2016 | Herald Gazette

    Hope residents rejected the option to lock in a 20-year trash disposal contract with ecomaine at the annual town meeting June 20. During the nearly three-hour meeting, voters gave as much time and consideration to the trash disposal decision, as they did to approving the 2016-2017 town budget totaling $778,756. The serious business of decision making was lightened up by an award presented to Fire Chief Clarence Keller at the beginning of the meeting, a standing ovation at the end of the meeting for Town Administrator Jon Duke, who is leaving the job after serving for 10 years, recognition of Selectmen James Annis and Chris Pinchbeck, who are leaving the board, and the customary 10-minute recess with homemade baked goods and snacks.
