WEAREDeliberative session postponed due to snow

The Weare school district deliberative session has been postponed due to Wednesday’s snowstorm. It will take place instead at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Weare Middle School.

The proposed operating budget is $15.3 million, a decrease of $3,328 from this year’s budget. The district is facing $141,000 worth of increases, including a $78,000 increase in special education contracted services, but that is outweighed by $282,699 worth of budget reductions, the biggest being $91,931 in salary costs. The default budget is $15.1 million.

A warrant article will ask for $75,000 from any budget surplus left at the end of this year to place it in a maintenance trust fund. That money would be used to replace a boiler at Center Woods Elementary School.

If all articles are approved, the budget would raise the tax rate by 27 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. That’s an additional $67.50 on a $250,000 home.
