Public to weigh in on proposed Nashua budget
A public hearing on the recommended budget will take place at 7 p.m. Monday at Nashua High School North, where residents may voice their opinions on the proposed combined annual municipal budget of $256.5 million.
The Budget Review Committee has been meeting frequently to study and analyze the 267-page proposal, which represents a 2.2 percent increase over the existing municipal budget of $251.1 million.
“I think the budget is an excellent budget. It is highly transparent,” former alderman Fred Teeboom told the committee this week.
Although the establishment of the fund would reduce the general fund revenue by $2 million, Lozeau said it is an ideal way to address long-term road infrastructure needs.
“I think this is a really good solution,” said the mayor. While some people have argued her proposal is a way to avoid the city’s spending cap, Lozeau said that both revenue sources — the motor vehicle permit fees and the highway block grant — are user fees and are both allowed to be used toward special revenue funds. Edward Mooney, of 44 Amherst St., told the committee to think twice about establishing the special revenue fund being proposed by the mayor.
He urged the committee to return the block grant to the budget and instead create a line item for paving.
