PETERBOROUGH — The Contoocook Valley School District deliberative session has been moved from Wednesday to Thursday night in anticipation of a Wednesday snowstorm.
The deliberative session is now set for Thursday at ConVal Regional High School at 7 p.m.
Voters will have an opportunity to discuss and amend a warrant article, which will face a districtwide vote on March 11.
First on the agenda is the proposed $45,793,510 2014-2015 budget, which is a less than 1 percent increase over last year’s budget.
Voters also will discuss a request to spend $545,419 to resurface and upgrade the ConVal Regional High School parking lot. Part of the project would be funded by $300,000 from the school district’s building capital reserve fund, with the remaining $245,419 to come from taxation.
The warrant also asks voters to approve $265,350 to resurface and upgrade the high school track, with $185,000 coming from the Arthur N. Daniels Trust for Contoocook Valley Regional High School and the remaining $80,350 from taxation.
Another article asks to spend $150,000 to resurface and upgrade the South Meadow School exit road, with $50,000 from the building capital reserve fund and $100,000 from taxation.
Voters also will discuss a request to enter into a three-year $45,000 lease to purchase a tractor for the facilities department. The first year’s payment would be $15,000.
