Milford: Ambulances, dump trucks pass muster
MILFORD - The warrant voters saw going into deliberative session is essentially the same as the one they'll see at town meeting, according to Town Administrator Guy Scaife.
Few changes were made to the ballot at deliberative session at the town hall auditorium on Saturday. Voters will still be weighing in on the purchase of two new ambulances and a new dump truck, but the operating budget that will go on the warrant was increased during deliberations.
According to Scaife, voters approved amendments to the proposed operating budget of $12,405,693. The dollar amount of the amendments totaled $24,450.
"This allowed for the adding of eight hours per week to a recreation coordinator position," Scaife said, as well as a lease payment for a new replacement street sweeper for the Department of Public Works.
If all of the warrant articles pass, the tax rate is expected to climb 4.8 percent, or .2 percent higher than the estimated increase going in to deliberative session.
