Budget: The proposed operating budget is $2.08 million, up about $5,000 from last year’s budget of $2.07 million.

The increase is so minimal, you have to squint to find it: The executive administration budget would go up about $4,000, and the support services line item would increase by about $4,000 as well. There’s a $2,000 increase in non-instructional services.

But that’s offset by decreases in the instruction budget, which would decrease by $7,000; the other outlays line, which would decrease by almost $5,000, and a complete zeroing out of the facilities acquisition and construction line, which had a budget last year of $16,000.

Noteworthy articles: This is a quiet year in Hill’s school district; aside from the budget, the school board is only asking for $15,000 worth of warrant articles.

About $10,000 of that is to add money to the School Building and Maintenance Expendable Trust Fund, a previously unestablished fund. The rest would go into the Special Education Capital Reserve Fund.

There is also an article to discontinue the School Construction and School Heating Systems capital funds.

Contested races: Three people – Paula McDonough, Natali Mills and Carol Snow-Asher – are running for one open seat on the school board. The winner will replace December Fortin.

Hill has only had its own autonomous school district since 2017; previously, it was in a joint school district with Franklin. It has been sending its middle and high school students to Newfound since 2015.

When and where: The town meeting will be held at 7 p.m. March 20.
