Gilford’s $13.1million budget plan includes dues to LRPC
The budget proposal includes 31 warrant articles. Among the largest is $1.2 million for the town police station renovation and addition, as well as the town’s first payment into the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid system of $78,162, which is now required for the town to use the regional dispatch and support system.
Article 21 asks for $220,000 to buy and equip a new ambulance, with $59,000 to come from the surplus fund balance and the remaining $161,000 come from the Ambulance Services Revolving Fund, again without need to increase taxes.
Town officials anticipate that the budget will cause the overall tax rate of the town to drop by 26 cents if passed, Dunn said.
The first session of Town Meeting will be held in the high school auditorium on Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. The second session, the actual voting, will take place at the Gilford Youth Center on March 11 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
