Delegates override commissioners in budget battle

BARNSTABLE — The Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates got the last word in a dust-up over a $74,000 gap between its budget and a spending plan proposed by county commissioners.

During a special meeting on Friday the assembly voted 73.78 percent to 23.49 percent to override a vote taken two days earlier by the three commissioners that would have restored the funding, which the assembly had previously voted to eliminate.

The delegate from Orleans, who controls 2.73 percent of the vote, was not present at the meeting. [truncated due to possible copyright]   click on link to keep reading :
