The budget includes the $15.69 million education budget and the $5.45 million general government budget. Voters also approved the town’s five-year capital improvement plan of $11.1 million. This budget computes to a 0.5-mill tax hike. A mill equals $1 for every $1,000 in assessed property value, so property owners with $150,000 assessments will see a $75 increases in their tax bills.
This is the earliest approved budget we can recall.
