Voters in Windsor on Tuesday rejected a request to borrow $350,000 to buy a new firetruck.

The vote was 61 yes, 166 no.

Fire Department members had said the truck was needed to replace a 28-year-old truck that is due for replacement because of its age and deteriorating condition.

In the Regional School Unit 12 budget referendum, Windsor voters supported the budget 142-86. The $20.27 million budget for schools in Chelsea, Whitefield, Windsor, Palermo, Somerville, Alna and Westport Island, is about 3 percent greater than the budget approved last year.
