MEXICO — Voters overwhelmingly passed every article Tuesday on the annual meeting warrant, according to Town Clerk Penny Duguay.

They also elected Richard “Richie” Philbrick to a fifth three-year term to the Board of Selectmen. He defeated Caroline Mitchell 286-130.

Mexico’s budget is $4.47 million for 2018-19, an increase of $40,393 from the current fiscal year, according to Town Manager Jack Gaudet.

He said the town’s share of the Oxford County budget is up $11,549, or 12.69 percent, and the Regional School Unit 10 assessment is up $56,000, or a 3.77 percent.

Gaudet said the tax rate will increase at least 75 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. The tax rate is $28.50.
