Brandon to revote town budget on Tuesday

BRANDON — Now that petitioners have triggered a re-vote on the Brandon town budget after it passed on Town Meeting Day by eight votes, the stage is set for voters to ask their long-awaited questions.
An informational meeting about the budget will be held at the Neshobe School on Monday, April 29, at 7 p.m. The Brandon selectboard will take budget questions from voters. The meeting will be moderated by Bernie Carr.
The re-vote on the town budget will take place the next day, Tuesday, April 30. Polls will be open at the Neshobe School from 7 a.m.- 7 p.m. Brandon residents who cannot vote in person on April 30 can obtain an absentee ballot at the temporary town offices at the Brandon Fire Station until the end of business on Monday, April 29.
The proposed Brandon municipal budget, which represented a 10.3 percent spending increase, passed by eight votes on Town Meeting Day, 428-420.
The $3,292,280 municipal budget ($2,480,080 to be raised by taxes) would result in a seven-cent tax hike for residents. Up roughly $240,000, it includes an additional full-time position in the Public Works Department, elevates the half-time recreation director position to full-time and buys a new loader for Public Works.
