Shall the Town of Dixfield Police Department be permanently disbanded effective December 31, 2017?

Yes________               No________

Explanation:   A “YES” vote means the Town of Dixfield would close the Police Department permanently effective December 31, 2017 and will no longer raise and appropriate money annually through taxation to operate a municipal police department: currently budgeted is $383,480 in total expenditures. The Town would rely on the Maine State Police and the Oxford County Sheriff’s Department to respond to calls for service at no additional cost to the town.

A “NO” vote means the Police Department would remain open, operational and will continue to request funding from taxation on an annual basis.
