In addition to a planned public hearing (which I plan to attend and hope that as many of our Moultonboro taxpayers as possible can attend and speak about your concerns) there is still the NH DRA final report and the hints that the problem may be greater than the $2.6 million.
The Moultonboro subsidy is alive an well throughout NH. I have tried with the LRPC with the strong approval of the BoS to argue against our disproportionate share of member fees which is primarily based upon property value. We have had no success with the other 29 member communities, who frankly do not want to give up our subsidy. Laconia is at the forefront. We have had limited success with the Lakes Region Mutual Aid, but we still pay a disproportionate share.
NH House Rep. Karel Crawford will be presenting an update on the County issues at this Thursday's BoS meeting and that may be a good time for citizens to come and ask her directly what she and fellow NH Rep. Glenn Cordelli can do at the state level to stop or reduce the Moultonboro subsidy.
