Voters in 100 communities hold Town Meeting day


PLAISTOW, New Hampshire — It's Town Meeting day in New Hampshire.

About 100 towns are deciding on issues Tuesday.

In Plaistow, voters will consider plans for an $11 million police station to replace an aging, crowded building. Lt. William Baldwin tells WMUR-TV ( when people are brought in for processing, items such as chairs, tables and computers are out in the open and make it unsafe.

In Fitzwilliam, residents will consider challenging the proposed Kinder Morgan gas pipeline. It would stretch across 70 miles of New Hampshire, mostly along an existing power line corridor, to bring gas to markets in New England that have limited pipeline capacity and high costs. Opposition includes fears the route would cause environmental harm and lower property values, and slow investment in renewable energy sources.
