    Woodstock defeats economic position

    WOODSTOCK — There were three articles of note in Woodstock that were voted by Australian ballot Tuesday. One was defeated and the other two passed.

    Voters defeated an article to hire an economic coordinator to promote economic development in Woodstock, 520-361. The article asked for $50,000 to hire the coordinator in conjunction with Green Mountain Economic Development Commission.

    Voters overwhelmingly approved an article to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, 707-186. The article would instruct state and federal legislatures to require criminal background checks for every gun sold in the United States and make gun trafficking a federal crime.

    The $11,322,305 Woodstock Union High School budget also passed, 414-195. The budget represented a decrease of $61,961 from this year’s budget of $11,384,266.
