I got this indirectly today from from the Town Finance Director.
It estimates the impact on the tax rate of the various warrant articles. It reasonably assumes no significant change in the town’s total assessed valuation.
I believe also that we would have to add outstanding debt service (previously issued bonds), and credit any surplus from the prior year budget. My estimate of the tax impact of town debt is about 40 cents/thousand, for a total estimate of $5.30.The total estimate is $4.91. Last year the town portion was $4.46.
So if all articles pass and there is no significant surplus, I estimate the Town portion of the Tax rate would go up
18.8% 10% next year. Ultimately, it’s up to you. Is there anything there that you would cut?
