Mayor Mark Winslow says the city is also hurting. “Even in good times, it would…affect us.”
The biggest hit comes from lost sewer and water revenue. That totals $34,000 a month.
“We’ve made some budget cuts,” Winslow said.

Winslow says the city has even asked the state for help. “If there’s any, any relief we could get on our bonds. And basically, what we’re being told is we borrowed the money, we have to pay it back.”

Despite losing two bids for prisoners over the last few weeks, there is still hope for the now-closed Standish Maximum Correctional facility. The state is drafting a proposal to house some California prisoners there.
