Will my property taxes increase because of this project?
The answer is no.
The financing for the town hall project is from ARPA funds in the amount of $411,229.06, existing Capital Funds in the amount of $212,291.68 and a one-time 2024 levy shift from the Road and Bridge Fund to the Capital Fund in the amount of $200,000.00. The maximum project budget, as approved by the electorate (citizens) at the 2023 annual meeting is $823,000.00. There are no tax increases due to the building project, as the electorate voted to shift, for one year, $200,000.00 in levy funds from the Road and Bridge Fund to the Capital Fund, thereby not increasing the levy with respect to the town hall.
Where Will I Vote?
The project is expected to take approximately six months to complete. There are no elections until March 2024. At this time, the plan is that the building will be completed in time for 2024 elections.
Contact the clerk with any questions.

What is Adopt a Storm Drain?
Everything that enters our storm drains gets transported to our waterways! This includes pollutants such as garbage, grass clippings, leaves, salt and oil. These types of pollutants can harm fish and wildlife populations, kill native vegetation, foul drinking water supplies, and make recreational areas unsafe and unpleasant. The program asks volunteers to clear their adopted storm drains and the surrounding area on a regular basis. Report what you collected and the amount so we can monitor the overall effects the program is having. Adopt A Storm Drain Today!
