Bellingham voters pass override

October 19, 2012

BELLINGHAM — Getting the needed two-thirds majority vote, Special Town Meeting voters last week approved a Proposition 2-1/2 override that will raise taxes in order to pay for a $15.4 million water treatment project.
Article 16 of the 23-article warrant asked voters to finance the project to construct water mains and a water treatment plant, as well as modify existing treatment and pumping systems to treat the town's drinking water through disinfection and reduce iron and manganese in tap water. The project will also ensure the town's wells meet state groundwater guidelines.
