Letter to the editor: Use town surplus to reduce taxes

Posted on February 20, 2017 |
By J. Douglas Dows

We had an unassigned surplus of $66,924 (page 12, 2015 audit) and raised the tax rate 2 percent. These surpluses are in addition to the “rainy day” fund established by the town several years ago.

Posted on February 20, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy
