Ossipee–November 28, 2017–A proposal to buy a $1.2 million town beach on Ossipee Lake failed at the polls following a special town meeting Tuesday night.
The meeting and vote was held at Town Hall. Hundreds of people attended. Selectmen’s chair Richard Morgan said the attendance doubled that of a regular town meeting and moderator Katy Meserve said it was the best turnout she has seen in nine years of moderating.
“I’m glad you are all here,” said Morgan.
The vote was 297 yes to 171 no but failed because it required a 66.6 or two thirds vote and only 63 percent were in favor. There were 468 votes.
