Court says town owes precinct

NORTH HAVERHILL—Haverhill has been ordered by a court to repay highway money it withheld from Woodsville.
The ruling comes as the two entities appear headed for trial in February over a lawsuit filed in 2020. But at least for now, Woodsville has been given a major boost as it seeks to claw back money it claims was kept from the precinct.
The dispute has some history with aspects of the agreement incorporated into state law dating to the 19th century.
