YORK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The York Board of Selectmen held an emergency meeting Monday morning to discuss their options to pay for mounting storm clean-up costs in the wake of a microburst which hit the town last week.
While selectmen could not agree on allocating money from the town's contingency fund to pay for overtime expenses and to reimburse contractors who helped remove trees from blocked roads, town manager Robert Yandow says the town will take action soon to pay for the emergency response and clean-up.
"We've been through this before. We know what it takes," stated Yandow. "Contractors will get paid. Everybody will get paid. At this point, it is just a matter of where those funds come from."
