WEST PARIS — Voters will gather at the Agnes Gray school gymnasium at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 3, to consider a recommended town budget of $1,091,615.

Town Manager John White said that with a $30,522 budget increase over last year, property taxes are expected to increase from $14.80 per $1,000 of assessed value to $15.30. That would mean a $50 increase for a home valued at $100,000.

White said the town has faced a decrease of nearly $26,000 in revenues from other sources since 2011.

Voters will also decide whether to appropriate $801 from snowmobile registration reimbursement for the construction and maintenance of public snowmobile trails.
