Town manager releases proposed budget


Town Manager Reginald “Buzz” S. Stapczynski has released his proposed spending plan for fiscal 2015, which begins July 1. Stapczynski’s recommended budget shows an increase of $7 million, or 4.5 percent, to $164.6 million. The proposal is based on projections showing that new growth remains strong at $1.5 million. Under the proposal, the budgets for town departments and divisions will increase an average of 3.5 percent, mainly due to contractual obligations. Fixed costs total $26.4 million in the proposed budget, which is an increase of 4.3 percent over the current fiscal year; health insurance is the largest expense in this category.
