Voting takes place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., at Bartlett Elementary School for District 5 voters and Goffstown High School for District 1.
“We converted portions of the (Church Street) station to propane heat but when you don’t have insulation it results in heat loss,” he said.
“The aging population increases calls for medical (assistance) but also small fires and alarm activations,” said O’Brien.
If the $19,580,945 operating budget and warrant articles 26, 27, 28 and 29 are approved, the total 2014 projected tax rate would be $9.42 per $1,000 property valuation, a decrease of 30 cents, or $70 less in taxes for a $250,000 home. If the proposed budget fails, the default budget would be $19,596,061. The budget increases are mainly due to insurance costs, fuel and electricity and wages, selectmen said.
