Rockland Maine Looks to Reserves to Restore City Jobs

By Stephen Betts

The council had been scheduled to preliminarily adopt the budget this week but decided there were still too many unanswered questions. Chief among those was whether to pay for dump operations through a per ton commercial hauling fee and an increased fee for the annual resident dump sticker rather than through property taxes.
