LITCHFIELD — Residents approved a $1.35 million budget and added $25,000 to the special projects fund to improve conditions at two dangerous intersections: Stevenstown, Upper Pond and Plains roads; and Route 197, West and Farrin roads.

The improvements are designed to alert motorists to oncoming traffic. Town officials said they will also seek state funding.

Voters rejected by a 26-18 vote a proposal initiated by Kevin Pulk to allow vehicle sales and service in the rural district, subject to review by the Planning Board.

The updates to the comprehensive plan were adopted with little discussion.

In other business, Richard Lane agreed to be the newest member of the Budget Committee. He received 11 write-in votes in the June 11 election.

Some 64 registered voters attended the meeting, which lasted about four hours.

Betty Adams — 621-5631
