Residents will be asked to approve a fiscal year 2018 general fund spending plan of $454,249, down from the $$460,946 a year ago. The proposed highway budget of $400,950 is slightly less that the $403,050 that voters authorized for the current year. Combined, the budgets represent a 1.9-percent reduction compared to this year.
