BETHEL — The SAD 44 school board has added three articles to its budget meeting agenda, Superintendent David Murphy said.

The public meeting for the 2016-17 fiscal year budget is tentatively scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, at the Telstar High School auditorium.

The three new articles are:

• Taking $90,000 from the Capital Improvement account for roof repairs to the Telstar Middle/High School building;

• Taking $116,000 from Capital Improvement to buy and install playground equipment at Crescent Park and Woodstock elementary schools; and

• Spending up to $370,000 from the Capital Improvement account to install carbon monoxide sensors and a multiple pellet boiler system at Crescent Park Elementary School.

“It will be up to voters to decide on each of these items,” Murphy said.

He said the school board voted 9-1 to adopt a spending plan of $10.59 million and voted unanimously to approve an Adult and Community Education budget of $164,394.

The articles will be decided by district voters from Bethel, Gilead, Greenwood, Newry and Woodstock.
