At a town meeting, residents voted 183-50 to approve a proposal from the police chief to impose a $20 fine on public profanity.Good bet a judge will call bullshit on the first citation.
Officials insist the proposal was not intended to censor casual or private conversations, but instead to crack down on loud, profanity-laden language used by teens and other young people in the downtown area and public parks.
I'm really happy about it," Mimi Duphily, a store owner and former town selectwoman, said after the vote. "I'm sure there's going to be some fallout, but I think what we did was necessary."
