Letter: Cost is the difference in North Yarmouth vote

The upcoming North Yarmouth referendum questions are extremely important to the residents of this town. It basically boils down to whether we want to stay a small urban town or grow into a Yarmouth or Falmouth.

To us it is simple, we would have chosen either of those other two, but wanted the small-town atmosphere. What is being proposed by some selectmen is not what we want and we are opposed to Question 1 and support Question 2; we do not want to see our taxes go up.

The company that surveyed the Middle School sewage system said that monitoring and periodic pumping would be necessary to maintain the system. According to this paper that could be $2,000 to $20,000 per year.

Simply this whole issue is about money and cost. Cost alone tells me to vote no on Question 1 and yes on question 2.
