Budget Cuts Split Rockland Maine Councilors

Oh boy.....

Rockland — Tensions were high last week as Rockland city councilors continued their review of the proposed 2010-2011 municipal budget and grappled with trying to maintain services while keeping property taxes in check.

The focus of the May 12 council meeting was public works and the transfer station. The proposed budget for public works calls for eliminating two full-time positions that are expected to become vacant this fall with the retirement of a pair of veteran workers. The department budget also calls for eliminating full-time seasonal help for the summer when the regular employees take vacations.
