At the annual Town Meeting on April 6, voters will be asked to approve a proposed 2014 town budget of $21.3 million, a 2.8 percent increase over fiscal 2013. The largest planned expenditure, nearly $12 million, is for the schools. That represents 69.5 percent of the town’s recommended operating budget, which is the same as this year. Town employee benefits are set at $3.5 million, a 1 percent rise over this year’s allocation. The new fiscal year begins July 1.
