that public sector employees should have a better deal than those paying for them.” Guerette, who asks for accountability in a number of areas, had earlier challenged Police Chief Joe O’Brion to prove that his department was effective in dealing with drug abuse among the town’s youth. Guerette was in favor of additional funding for school resource officer and the DARE officer, both of whom are currently part-time, and said he’d like to see some hard data that proved that there was a drug problem or not in the schools. As a School Board member, he said that parents are concerned about drugs in the high school and the need for police to be able to do something about these drugs.
O’Brion responded by saying that police
keep track of arrests and other such activity, and that the school resource officers work mainly with juveniles, so their reports are all confidential by law. Byron also commented that the low number of drug arrests might suggest that these programs are effective. When the dust settled, no amendments were offered and this warrant will appear on the ballot as presented. Warrant Article 4 is to see if the voters will allow selectmen to include the Highway Block Grant money to be included as part of the regular operating budget. This grant is made on an annual basis and is to be used for road enhancements, including bridge and cache basin work. According to selectmen, the auditors asked that this change be made. Warrant Article 5 asks that the town enters into a contract with Pennichuck East Utilities to assume responsibility for Fire Protection charges for the water system users. Currently, there are 3,300 residents in Litchfield who pay for the fire hydrants. Supposedly, the town will bill residents who do not pay for

the hydrants $800 per instance if water is needed for their property. In reality, the town has never billed. This warrant article asks that the town ensure that every resident pays a share of the fire hydrants. There was a study on this in 2009 and, in 2010, voters directed selectmen to bring forward this warrant article. When Warrant Article 6 was discussed,
there was a bit of controversy. In 2003, voters directed selectmen to put 100 percent of the revenues collected for the Land Use Change Tax into a fund to be used by the Conservation Commission for funding land acquisition. Selectmen wanted to take half of the revenues and put it into the general fund to offset their expenses. This caused extensive debate and several motions before the fight was over, the warrant article had been both amended and rewritten. Chairman Byron said he wanted to use the money to offset the tax rate. However, selectmen had already heard from residents who wanted to town to scale back on spending because the recession had hurt too many people. There were other residents who spoke against this warrant article and asked for spending cuts rather than over- riding a previous town vote. Conservation Commissioner Rich Husband explained how the money could be used to keep taxes lower. He talked about conserving open space and noted that such preservation helped preserve the town’s rural character while reducing demand on services, keeping the tax rate lower. With an amendment to make the split 80 – 20 with the town getting to take 20 percent of the revenues, voters agreed that this was better than a 50/50 split.
Next, an amendment to make the split 99 – 1 percent split, with one percent going to
the town, was discussed. Planning Board member and Conservation Commission member Ray Peeples, also a former selectman, talked about the benefit to the town. However, this amendment failed. Next, an amendment to reword the article
was accepted. The re-wording makes the intent of the warrant article clearer to voters. Two petitioned warrant articles will change elected officials into appointed officials. The first one was to appoint a fire chief. Former Litchfield Fire Chief Brent Lemire spoke in favor of this article. Lemire said that Litchfield had been lucky that qualified candidates had run and been elected, but he worried about the future if an unqualified candidate was elected. Later, he said that he had first proposed appointing the fire chief two decades ago when he was the elected fire chief.
Selectmen did not take a position on this
warrant article. The second position to be removed from election and made an appointed position was the Town Treasurer. Although no petitioner came forward to speak, Byron spoke. Although he said that selectmen had not taken a position, he did point out that if the person was appointed, selectmen could perform a background check. Selectmen are also asked to be able to create an Expendable Trust Fund and fund it with $58,862, which is the amount of the unfunded liability for the payout of unused time. Town Administrator Jason Hoch explained that the town was required to pay unused vacation time when an employee terminated or retired. The warrant article would allow selectmen to withdraw or add money to the fund. Hoch said in future years, additions to the fund would be much smaller than the initial payment.
