Dunbarton voters to decide on $2.17M budget
On March 11, voters will be asked to approve a $75,000 warrant article to upgrade the kitchen and bathroom, bring the electrical system up to code, and provide office and meeting space.
The budget increased by about $105,000 over last year and includes replacing computers, costs for retirement and workers’ compensation costs, a $10,000 increase in health insurance, $7,000 for electricity and oil and $10,000 toward building maintenance, said Town Administrator Line Comeau.
Voters will be asked to approve several warrant articles with funds raised through taxes — $6,700 to purchase new mapping software, installation and labor for a town cemeteries layout; establishing a capital reserve fund for the town’s 250th anniversary celebration and raising $10,000 to be placed in the fund; $18,200 for the milfoil control at Gorham Pond and to authorize the selectmen to accept a $7,280 Variable Milfoil Control Grant from the state’s Department of Environmental Services, with the balance of $10,920 coming from taxes; $17,000 to change the police department secretary’s position from part time to full time starting July 1; and $24,000 to hire and equip a full-time police officer starting Sept. 1.
