Brooklin Town Meeting set for April 6

BROOKLIN — Voters will be asked to approve a municipal budget that is at least $75,000 less than this year’s at the annual Town Meeting to be held Saturday, April 6, at 9 a.m. at the school.

The municipal election will be held Friday, April 5, from 2 to 8 p.m.

Selectman Albert Smith said last year voters approved $100,000 for the final payment on the new fire truck.

“This year we’re just asking for $20,000 for the fire truck reserve,” Smith said.

One warrant article calls for the final payment on the town records vault.

“That will mean the town has no indebtedness,” Smith said. “We’re quite confident that if nothing changes dramatically at the Town Meeting, we’ll retain about the same mill rate, 6.6, that we’ve had for the past three years.”

Information about the proposed school budget was not available before press time.
