Crunch the numbers: Tetreau’s $272M budget proposal

The town spending package of roughly $272.5 million that First Selectmen Michael Tetreau unveiled Thursday night can be inspected in detail HERE, as posted on the town’s website,

As proposed, the overall budget has a spending increase of about 4 percent over the current fiscal year’s budget of nearly $264 million.

The budget now faces a months-long review and approval process by the Board of Selectmen, Board of Finance and Representative Town Meeting. The spending package and tax rate eventually adopted will take effect with the start of the 2012-13 fiscal year on July 1.
