Duxbury: Department Heads Present Fiscal 2018 Budget Requests

Duxbury department heads met with the finance and fiscal advisory committees at Monday night’s selectmen’s meeting.

Duxbury Police Chief Matt Clancy asked for $47,000 for two new police cruisers and $21,000 for 25 sets of new bulletproof vests and helmets.

Clancy says with more high powered fire arms on the streets he wants his officers better protected.

Also the director of the Duxbury Council on Aging Joanne Moore asked for just over $182,000 for architectural drawings for the senior center expansion project.

Duxbury Town Manager Rene Read says the next step will be reviews by the fiscal advisory and finance committees.

The Duxbury Fire Department asked for a new $700,000 pump engine and a new $270,000 ambulance.
