Lee to decide on slight budget increase, race car petition and new cruiser this year

LEE - Residents have the opportunity Saturday to discuss increasing the town budget by 1.8 percent and a petition to define race car education at the Lee USA Speedway.

The town's deliberative session is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Saturday in the Mast Way School at 23 Mast Road. Residents will vote March 12 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Public Safety Complex on George Bennett Road.

If approved, Article 4 would appropriate $3,522,365 as the operating budget. It is $64,872 - or 1.8 percent - larger than last year's budget of $3,457,493. If rejected, a default budget of $3,495,183 would be enacted and the town could hold a special meeting to discuss a revised budget.

Article 3 petitions residents to amend the existing Racetrack Ordinance by defining "race car education" as a fully licensed and insured school. It will operate no more than four times a month between April and October and only allow up to four NASCAR-like stock cars on the track at one time between noon and 6 p.m., if approved.

Among the five other articles, residents will consider adding $387,000 - including $135,000 from the surplus - to existing capital reserve funds, appropriating $80,000 to build a field at Little River Park and purchasing a new police cruiser for $27,964.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
