DERRY- Less than a dozen residents were allowed to speak during a 30 minute public forum at Tuesday's Derry Town Council Meeting. It was the first opportunity for the public to address the council since they voted 4-3 to approve a budget that includes some of the biggest cuts in town history.
Many are upset about the cuts to the police and fire departments that include shutting down the Hampstead Rd. Fire Station.
Some are happy with the outcome of the vote, saying they're glad their taxes will be lowered.
Others point the finger at the four councilors who voted for the budget, calling it "orchestrated" and saying there was an "alignment" between the four.
Councilor Mark Osbourne told one speaker, "There was not an alignment, if you watched previous meetings you would find that quite frankly there are certain councilors who agree on different issues."
Former councilor Neil Wetherbee tells NH1 News there are efforts to try and overturn the vote.
