Additional Reminder:
The town budget process for FY10 is already underway. The Selectmen voted 4-1 on February 7 not to consider an override for the FY10 budget. They are currently considering whether to take the annual 2 1/2% allowed by the state. It is always appropriate to e-mail the Selectmen and/or School Committee and let them know your thoughts regarding the options available.
