Vote YES on Question #2 and #4, Ignore Question #3

May 10, 2010

If you want to support education and DY Schools at the polls on Election Day May 11, 2010, here’s what to look for on the ballot.

Question #2 is the one to vote YES on. This approves an override for $952,810 for the DY School District to make up the shortfall in their budget funding.

You can ignore Question #3 or vote No on it. Question #3 is a moot question since the rooms and meals taxes were passed at Town Meeting last week. Because of this the DY School District does not need the $1.5 million asked for in this question.

We also support Voting YES on Question #4. This question will give $950,000 to Yarmouth Police, Fire, DPW (Publice Works), Natural Resources, and Recreation Department. Each of these departments will use the funds to increase public safety. Police will be able to increase current staffing levels from 5/4 officers, 1 Sargent, & 1 dispatcher per shift to 6 officers, 2 sargeants, & 2 dispachers. The fire department will be able to staff closer to the levels they should be at also along with saving on overtime money by having those higher levels of staffing. Recreation will be able to have better beach safety by hiring more life guards. The police and firemen of our town have made great concessions in their contracts. This override will allow them to serve and protect our town well.

Here is a PDF of the actual ballot that you will see when you vote on Tues, per Yarmouth Town Hall.
