MEXICO — Voters Tuesday approved all articles in a $3.29 million 2021-22 town budget, according to Town Clerk Tami Vradenburgh.
Town Manager Raquel Welch said the budget is down more than $100,000 from last year. “The mill rate should remain the same.”
One factor in lowering the budget can be found in the highway department. Welch said the town is taking a year off on construction projects, except for some road work on the upper portion of Woodland Avenue.
Citizens voted 55-19 to approve an article to spend up to $110,000 to purchase land for a public safety building. The monies would come out of surplus.
For that building, Welch said, “We have no timeline. We’re not in any rush. We’re just trying to get things in motion. We don’t have a specific place yet, but we need to have money to purchase land, if we’re going to do it.”
Vradenburgh added that write-in Veronica Child won a three-year term to the RSU 10 Board of Directors.
Board Chairman Richard Philbrick, who has served on the board for 14 years, ran unopposed and earned another three-year term.
