New Haven town meeting wrap-up 2018

NEW HAVEN — In three uncontested races for public office in New Haven, selectboard members John Roleau and Jim Walsh were re-elected on Town Meeting Day, and Sarah LaPerle was re-elected for a three-year term on the Mount Abraham Unified School District board.
New Haven voters on Tuesday also approved the following town spending:
•  $1,160,886 for the Road Fund.
•  $729,174 for the General Fund.
•  $25,208 for voted appropriations.
Voters approved two articles requesting up to $50,000 apiece from the Reserve Facilities Fund — one for replacing the furnace in the Town Hall and the other for repairing drainage around that building.
Also on Town Meeting Day, New Haven voters, along with MAUSD voters from four other towns, approved a $28,343,828 budget for the coming school year, 1,734–1,231, with all ballots commingled. By nearly the same margin, 1,785–1,196, those same voters rejected a proposed bond for the renovation of Mt. Abraham Union Middle/High School.
At the New Haven Town Hall on Monday night, voters approved a land swap, which would convey a 0.15-acre parcel to the New Haven Town School District in exchange for a 0.26-acre parcel.
They also approved an article establishing a Conservation Reserve Fund to identify and help preserve the natural resources within the town.
