TOWN COUNCIL BUDGET WORKSHOP – MARCH 29, 2016


Last night was the second round of budget workshop for the 2016-2017 Municipal budgets.  The workshop concentrated on departments controlled by Mr. Ryan Leighton.  The workshop lasted for approximately two hours with the following break-down.

All these departments are asking for increases that total $493,761.  This is not the final budget so do not panic yet; hopefully the Town Council can make serious adjustments before the budget is approved.

Public Works - $391,254.00

Solid Waste - $3,153.00

Town Buildings - $36,939.00

Technology - $55,173.00

Sewer Department - $7,242.00

If you add last night’s total of $493,761.00 and the first budget meeting of $115,052.00, the new total increase is $608,813.00.  See if you can figure out what this does to your taxes?
