A photo was published on the Newburyport page of Wednesday’s Daily News with the wrong story. The photo, of Lance Rickard, Newburyport’s arborist and assistant tree warden, appears today on page 3 with the correct Tree Talk column.
A story in Wednesday’s Daily News included incorrect information about funding for the Newburyport City Council’s salaries in the fiscal 2020 budget. On Monday, the council voted to completely cut a proposed $33,000 increase to its total salary out of the city’s budget for fiscal 2020. The proposed increase would have raised the total for salaries for the City Council to $89,000, but it will stay at its current $56,000.
