§ 105. Police protection
(a) Police protection in the former Village area shall be considered a special services district for those residing therein, provided that boundaries may be altered as provided in section 208 of the charter. Voters residing in the special services district may determine by a majority vote of those present and voting at a duly warned meeting the extent of services desired. The Selectboard shall assess a tax based on the grand list of the area served for each owner’s share of the listed value of his or her property to cover the costs for the entire area.
(b) If and when the Town desires police protection for the entire Town, the special services district will cease to exist for this purpose and the entire cost of police protection will become part of the General Fund budget expense of the Town.
