After lengthy review, Derry councilors scheduled to approve municipal budget
A simple majority vote is required to pass the budget.
“It’s never an easy decision,” Councilor Joshua Bourdon said Friday. “It can be emotional and we are doing the best we can on behalf of our constituents, the people who elected us here to make those decisions.”
Before the 6-1 vote was taken, Budreau and Chief Financial Officer Frank Childs warned that such a reduction could have dire financial consequences.
Next year, the town could be facing a difficult situation to bring the budget within the town’s tax cap, with possible cuts in service to be considered, Childs said.
But Council Chairman Mark Osborne said he felt like he’d heard a similar discussion last year at budget time about possible gloomy financial scenarios if certain cuts were made. But he added things still seemed to work out well, in his view, with the current budget.
