Warrant 3 was the for the upcoming school budget in the amount of $7,992,020. The default budget is equal to last year's budget of $7,975,592. The difference is $16,428.

Moyer said the quick meeting was the result of good communication between the board and voters.
But resident Alan Hall said the apparent unanimity is not indicative of the feelings of all residents.
"I think people will do their fighting at the polls," said Hall.0003 - Candia resident Scott Baker asks a question about high school tuition in the proposed school budget. Baker was the only resident to speak at the 11 minute meeting.
