Conway voting on tax cap today
For selectmen, voters will choose from not more than two of the three candidates: David Weathers, Mary Carey Seavey and Kevin MacMillan, who is the lone non-incumbent.
There are four candidates for three seats on the Conway school board with Michelle Capozzoli facing Rick Breton, John Skelton and Janine McLauchlan, all of whom are incumbents.
Earlier this year, residents who were concerned about what they said was Conway’s spiraling tax rate introduced petitioned articles during the respective deliberative sessions on both the town and school warrants that would enact a “tax cap” to restrict how much the annual amount to be raised by taxes could rise.
On the school ballot, voters will consider an operating budget of $33,848,895, and if they fail to adopt it, the default budget would be $33,771,150. Voters will also weigh in on a new collective bargaining agreement between the school board and the Conway Education Association.
The school ballot also contains articles regarding new CBA’s with the Conway Educational Support Personnel totaling $119,577 and with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees which has a total cost of $59,671. Both of the CBA’s cover the current as well as the 2015-2016 fiscal years and both have the recommendations of the budget committee.
