Westmoreland (NH) Voters Reject New Fire Station

Westmoreland residents rejected a proposal for a $2.3 million new fire station by the slimmest of margins, reports SentinelSource.com.

The article required a 60 percent majority to pass and it failed 278-189, just three votes short of the threshold. With such a close vote, the town delayed reporting its official results.

The proposed 6,400 square-foot fire station would have been built on town-owned land behind town hall. Firefighters were pushing for a new station for several reasons, including inadequate space for equipment in the current 3,650 square-foot station — built in 1954 — and its inability to accommodate certain health and safety protocols.
