Selectboard approves water, sewer budget with rate increase

The Springfield Selectboard has voted to approve the 2016-2017 water and sewer budget that will raise rates, but will also help the Public Works Department with utility costs.



  1. i would like to know why,the water and sewer budget is not voted on by the resident's that use these services
    sounds like the department gets whatever they want for money

  2. I agree with McGillivray who said, "'It’s my belief that if we didn’t have $259,000 in delinquency, the rate could be lower.'" Between blighted buildings, the water rate increase, etc. I'm getting tired of the money of responsible people compensating for those who are negligent.

  3. Pick up the phone. Call 885-2104. Ask.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
