GLOVER – Tuesday, Glover voters shot down the proposed Lake Parker sewer expansion. A total of 144 voters showed up at the polls with over half voting against the proposal. Mike Ladd, a member of the select board, said that this effectively stops the proposal as it was presented.
When the initial informational meeting with Lake Parker residents was held, there had been talk about those in the project area taking on the entire cost if the town voted down the proposed split. This could still be an option if property owners are interested in going forward with the project, Ladd said.
