NORWAY — The Budget Committee has wrapped up its review of the proposed $4.4 million spending plan for 2014-15.

“It’s been a straightforward budget presentation,” Chairman Vern Maxfield said.

On May 12, the committee will make its recommendations on each departmental request, he said.

Town Manager David Holt unveiled his proposed $4.4 million municipal budget to selectmen in early April. He said the Oxford County and SAD 17 assessments came in less than expected and some new taxable growth is expected so the impact to taxpayers will be about a 5 percent increase from this fiscal year.

Holt said he did not recommend everything requested by department heads in order to keep the increase below 6 percent.

In addition to the department requests, capital requests include buying a new, fully-equipped highway truck, a new trackless sidewalk plow and repairs to the fire station floor.

Voters will decide on the budget recommendations at the annual town meeting in June.
