AVON — Voters at Saturday’s annual Town Meeting will be asked to consider a $273,740 municipal that is 16.6% more than last year.

The $38,900 increase is due to “roads, operational costs, the cost to roll out the planned increase in town office hours and an additional staff member for 2021,” Selectman Jerry Gilchrist said.

The budget does not include the town’s share of the Franklin County and School Administrative District 58 budgets.

The meeting begins at 9 a.m. at the Avon Community Hall.

In elections, nominations will be taken from the floor for a three-year selectman’s seat and a two-year selectman’s seat. There is also a three-year seat for the school board, and one-year terms for a town constable, a town clerk, a tax collector, a road commissioner and a treasurer. All incumbents are seeking reelection.

Gilchrist said he doesn’t anticipate debate on any of the 56 routine articles.
