Yet another budget plan being voted on in Morris
Litchfield.bz (02-14-18)


Voters in Morris will wear out a yet another path to the polls in Town Hall on Wednesday when they consider a fourth proposed town budget for 2017-18.
 
Hours for the day’s referendum on the proposed town budget of $9,409,902 are noon to 8 p.m.
 
The proposed budget is $329,589, or 3.6 percent, higher than the 2016-17 budget of $9,080,213. Under the spending plan, the tax rate would be 28.65 mills, an increase of .82 mills over the tax rate of 27.83 mills for 2016-17.
 
Three previous budget proposals were defeated in referendums last June, September and December. Fiscal year 2017-18 is into its eighth month.
 
If the latest spending plan fails, the Board of Finance is prepared to cut town services and place town employees on furlough.
