KENNEBUNKPORT — Voters want to continue paying for the legal fight over Goose Rocks Beach.

They approved a warrant item at Saturday’s town meeting that would provide $300,000 for the litigation.

Last year, voters approved $250,000 for the case and the town spent about $150,000 the previous year.

The plaintiffs, a group of beachfront property owners, sued the town in October 2009. They argue that the town is violating their property rights by allowing the public to use areas that are privately owned.

 

The town maintains the entire length of the 2-mile beach is public, from the low-water mark to the dry sand above the high-water mark.
