North Country battle escalates: Colebrook won't send police help to Stewartstown
Quinn said Tuesday he was “aware that there is a situation” between Colebrook and Stewartstown, adding that he was lining up discussions with the appropriate officials.
On March 10, Judge Peter Cyr found in favor of Stewartstown in a small-claims suit filed by Colebrook in First Circuit Court in Lancaster.
Colebrook said it costs $225 per call for its officer to go to Stewartstown, which has neither a police department nor fire department. It contracts for fire coverage with nearby Beecher Falls, Vt.
“We were hoping as a board that this thing would go away,” said Burns, and that the relationship between the towns would return to what it had been before the lawsuit.
