According to our selectman Bob Boilard;
A $1.726 Billion Dollar shortfall or 6.5% from last years state revenues. I guess we can expect cuts in education and municipal aide. This surely could lead to layoffs and furloughs. Lastly, expect a large state tax increase for FY21. Time to tighten the belt!
Of course the best way to get more tax money is to end the kick down! Open up businesses and get people working so taxes will start flowing in.
But, there will have to be budget cuts. We need someone on the school committee that u deratands that we can’t just grow the school budget year after year. I am that person.
