A rescheduled public hearing in Sherman will be held Saturday. The proposed budget was to be discussed tonight, but the hearing will instead be on Saturday morning at 10:30am in the meeting room of Mallory Town Hall.
The budget has been proposed at $14.5 million. It's a .86 percent increase in spending over the current year, and represents a flat tax rate from the current year. The Board of Education budget is about $9.4 million, a nearly 9-percent increase. The $5.14 million budget covers a 2-percent salary increase.
Prior to the 10:30 budget hearing, there is a 10am Town Meeting on Saturday in Sherman about $10,000 for beach sand, ball field clay, playground mulch, and stone dust for track. $18,500 is also up for discussion for equipment to maintain the Town beach and the ball fields.
