Annual Town Budget Meeting Set for Monday Night

May 1, 2016 Budget, Government No Comments

On Monday night, the town will hold its annual budget meeting in the Canton High School auditorium.

Electors will consider whether to approve a spending package of $37,549,199, a 1.94 percent increase in expenditures over the approved 2015-2016 budget of $36,834,299. It is a 1.29 percent increase over the 2015-2016 revised budget of $37,069,299.

The plan would raise the mill rate from 29.19 to 29.76, costing the “average” taxpayer an additional $135 per year.

The meeting takes place at 7 p.m. in the Canton Middle/High School auditorium, 76 Simonds Ave. 

By town charter, appropriations can be potentially decreased but not be increased at the annual budget meeting. 150 qualified voters must attend for a vote to be valid. If the budget were to fail at the meeting, the finance board would make adjustments and present it again.

If there are fewer than 150 qualified voters at the meeting or that number of residents petition ahead of time, the budget would be decided at a referendum.

Recently the Board of Selectmen chose May 10 as the potential budget referendum date. Should that be necessary, it would cost the town approximately $3,500 officials said.
