Tremont awards police contract to Southwest Harbor

TREMONT — During a fast-paced 90-minute meeting with about 135 people in attendance, Tremont residents moved quickly through their Warrant 48 Tuesday, May 14, and voted 102-19 to award the neighboring city a police contract. from South-West Harbour. A day earlier, voters rejected the short-term rental ordinance.

During the comment portion of Article 17, which was the selection of a law enforcement agency to cover Tremont, most residents made it clear that they were not satisfied with the service previously provided by the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department.

One voter commented that the sheriff’s department has done a great job in the past, but the Southwest Harbor Police Department would be appropriate due to its proximity to Tremont for an additional $135,393.
