We've talked a lot about the County budget in recent weeks, and the Town is working hard on our budget, but no word to date on the School budget for fiscal year 2016-17. There was mention of it at the 12/8/15 School Board meeting and a first draft was handed out, but no indication of numbers. Since there was no sound available from the streaming video, I have no idea what the preliminary numbers may be and I can find nothing on the district web site.
My expectation as a taxpayer is some movement to reduce the budget as enrollment continues to decline. We ( all taxpayers in Moultonboro) are looking at our County tax bill increasing from about $3.3 million at the end of 2014 to $4 million in 2016.
