A town warrant will be placed before voters that would increase the municipal budget by $478,986, or 3.25 percent, the Board of Selectmen decided Wednesday evening.
Town Administrator Scott Dunn said the two biggest things driving the increase are a boost in the road improvement budget and the addition of two new full-time firefighters.
“Other reasons include increasing costs for personnel and benefits and increased costs for sewer expenses paid to the Winnipesaukee River Basin Project that is paid for by sewer fees and not tax dollars,” he said.
