Here’s a link to the Article as it will appear on the Ballot:
What it means: A new vehicle will be purchased to replace the 2004 Ford pick up truck that now has 120,000 miles on it with some condition issues. The truck is used to handle animals and is also used for plowing. Since the vehicle started to have more serious issues, the Police Department is no longer plowing with it.
Those in favor say: This is something that we replace every 10 years or so, and the vehicle is worn out.
Those against say: No one spoke against this Article at Deliberative Session.
Fiscal Impact: The average Hampton home valued at $329,000 would bear an increased tax cost of $4.38 if this Article passes.
