rst time o Wedesday sice
two ballot initiatives weredefeated by voters. A plan to
refrbish the mai re statio
at a cost of $5.2 million and arequest for $435,000 for plansfor a new police station wererejected at the spring townelection. Last year, two sepa-rate plans for a new police sta-
tio ad a ew re statio were
also rejected at the polls.Study committee chair-man Neil Johnson said thegroup had been working onthe issue for over three years,examining multiple locationsand possibilities –– includingthe idea of a combined publicsafety facility.“It seems like forever,”Johnson said.

With swie  reach
-ing further across the nation,Duxbury Fire Chief KevinNord felt it was a good timeto present the Board of Select-men with a plan that outlineswho’s in charge of the town if its leaders were unable to per-form their duties.Nord gave selectmen adraft of the “Continuity of Op-erations Plan” Monday night.It lists the procedures that musttake place if, during a majoremergency, the town’s deci-sion makers fall ill and are un-
able to act. Oce it is alized,
it will name a list of succes-sors to Town Manager RichardMacDonald if he is unable toperform his duties.“It addresses the ques-tion of how would the town of Duxbury continue to operate if we lost our leadership,” saidNord.
