Budget is Passed at Referendum!

2018-19 Budget

The 2018-2019 Budget passed at referendum yesterday, with 362 YES and 308 NO.

The Board of Finance voted last night to set the mill rate at 31.7 mills.

This represents a ZERO % increase.

Also, thanks very much to the individuals who worked hard on this budget over the past five months: the Capital Improvements Committee, Board of Selectmen, Board of Finance, Board of Education, Town Department Heads and Town employees, especially the Finance Department.
