Letter: Republicans support referendum for fire trucks


To the editor:

The Plainville Republican Town Committee endorsed the upcoming referendum for the purchase of two fire trucks at its May 23 meeting.

The referendum is scheduled for Tuesday, June 19, from 6 a.m.to 8 p.m. at the Plainville Fire House. All eligible taxpayers and registered voters are encouraged to vote Yes for the appropriation. By funding the purchases through long term borrowing, the town’s financial advisor stated it is the most prudent use of funding the purchase and will not affect the mill rate during the term of the borrowing.

We hope with your help supporting our local volunteer fire department we will provide our volunteers with much needed equipment for everyone’s safety.
