Hooksett officials shorten this year's ballot
The budget committee's recommended operating budget is $16,681,262, which represents a $621,720, or 3.87 percent, increase over last year's approved stipend. The estimated municipal tax impact is $6.73 per $1,000 assessed valuation, or $1,682.50 on a $250,000 home.
"Most of it is insurances and contracts that were approved last year, like the fire department's union contract, things of that nature," said Shankle. "Insurances increased $426,000, that's why both the operating budget and the default budget are up."
Should all money articles, including the operating budget be approved, the total municipal tax rate will increase from $6.88 to $7.08, or an additional $50 on a $250,000 home.
In addition to three open three-year seats on the Budget Committee, the Town Council has four available positions, including openings in Districts 2 and 3 and two at-large spots.
