Incumbent selectmen challenged in Pelham
Incumbent board members William McDevitt and Doug Viger are being challenged by political newcomer Paul Moriarty.
He said he’s proud of the job the board has done on issues such as the new central fire station and the updated negotiated union contracts. If he is re-elected, Viger said he would like to focus on stabilizing the town’s tax rate by creating more procedures and templates as the basis of how the town moves forward financially.
The $13,423,831 budget on the ballot is only about $120,000 more than last year’s approved budget of $13,310,525.
The new exemption takes a three-tiered approach, granting up to $33,000 off assessed property values for property owners 64 to 74, $85,000 for those 75 to 79, and capping it at $100,000 off the assessed property value for those 80 and older.
Polls are open on Tuesday, March 11, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Pelham High School.
