Bradley passes million dollar budget and a measure to get a new fire truck

BRADLEY, Maine — Residents of Bradley approved the town’s highest budget since at least 2016 and the town’s proposal to get a new fire truck during voting at the polls Tuesday. 

The  $1,383,960 municipal budget was passed with 55 votes for and 4 against the measure on June 8. Last year, the town’s budget was $1,277,852, and for 2016-2017 the town spent $993,914 on the municipal budget. 

The town also passed a measure to spend $375,000 to lease a new fire truck if the fire department is not awarded a grant through the Federal Emergency Management Agency. 

The new fire truck would replace a 1989 GMC tanker that doesn’t meet National Fire Protection Association standards, according to the town. 

Voters also elected Duane Lugdon and Laurence Wade to serve on the Town Council until 2024.
