Selectmen Set Tax Rate at $10.43 for 2017

Meeting yesterday morning at 9 AM, the selectmen set the tax rate for the coming year at $10.43 per $1,000 assessed property value. That’s a $.04 increase from last year. The tax rate would have gone up $.10 but the selectmen took $100,000 from the undesignated fund balance to offset the increase. (Another way to keep the tax rate steady — or even lower it! — would be to lower spending.) The town portion is $2.91, up $.02 over last year. The selectmen took no input from members of the public before or after their vote on the tax rate.

  1. Thanks Max for your reporting. It is nice not to have to wait for Granite State Snooze to report on this. If it is ok with you, I was thinking of recommending you to Tom Beeler and see if he will offer you a job as a reporter!!!!
