RE­VISED TOWN BUD­GET TO BE DIS­CUSSED

The News-Times - - NEWSBITES - [email protected]

Res­i­dents will dis­cuss the re­vised pro­posal for the mu­nic­i­pal op­er­a­tions bud­get at a town meet­ing at 7 p.m. Wed­nes­day in the multi-pur­pose room of the mu­nic­i­pal cen­ter..

The fi­nance board has rec­om­mended spend­ing $31.6 mil­lion for town op­er­a­tions next fis­cal year. This is $385,000 less than the $32 mil­lion pro­posal vot­ers nar­rowly re­jected in an April 11 ref­er­en­dum. Dur­ing that vote, the $46.4 mil­lion school plan and the $1 mil­lion cap­i­tal bud­get passed.

Un­der the lat­est pro­posal, the tax rate would in­crease by

1.65 per­cent. Town and school spend­ing would be just un­der

$78 mil­lion.

At the town meet­ing, res­i­dents will vote to send the pro­posal to a ref­er­en­dum.
