Veazie Declines Major Grant 

Veazie was awared a federal grant, worth over 150-thousand dollars, to hire an additional police officer for the town’s department. However, in a city council meeting held earlier this month, the town opted not to accept the money. The funding would have supported the position for three years, after which Veazie would be required to pay for the officer to stay on for a fourth year.Tonight, a city council meeting will be held to revisit the issue.
