Phillips Residents Vote This Week 

Residents of a Maine town who gave the heave-ho to their local government will revisit the issue this week.

Voters in Phillips on June 28 rejected a proposal to raise more than $250,000 to cover the amount that had been exceeded in last year’s budget.

In doing so, they abolished town government Town Manager Lynn White had to lay off about 30 full and part-time employees, including himself.

Town residents are angry about tax increases and they say local roads are falling apart despite their spending.

They’ll meet again this Saturday.
