Hanson voters went to the polls in large numbers Saturday to return two selectmen to the board and approve two override questions.
In a three-way race for two spots on the Board of Selectmen, Chairman Steve Amico and Selectman Don Howard prevailed.
“I feel as though we’ve done a good job on the board,” Amico said. “The voters today told us we did do a good job.”
Voters supported an override to buy a new fire truck at a cost of $390,000. A debt exclusion, it will add $103 to the average tax bill for one year. Paying for the truck in one year will save taxpayers $37,000 in interest.
Voters also supported a $237,000 override for the Whitman-Hanson School district.
The overrides attracted 1,642 voters, a high turnout for Hanson Town Elections.
