Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Residents in the Vermont town of Wilmington have voted down a measure that would have established an emergency/disaster fund.

Suggestions about the proposal at town meeting on Tuesday focused on including words such as "recovery" and "control" in the measure.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports select board member Susie Haughwout said it's an important issue, and it might be best to withdraw the proposal, given its problems.
