Budget: The proposed operating budget of $3.3 million is down $18,203 over last year’s approved budget. The projected 2019 municipal tax rate is $6.77 per $1,000 assessed property value, an increase of 43 cents over last year. If the budget and other warrant articles are approved, the increase equates to about $107 for a $250,000 home.

Noteworthy articles: Voters will be asked to purchase and outfit a new police cruiser at a cost of $50,000, with $12,000 to come from the police equipment revolving fund and $38,000 to be raised by taxes.

Residents will also consider road and bridge reconstruction and repair projects totaling $636,000, although 100 percent of the costs will be funded by money already set aside. The article will not lapse until Dec. 31, 2020.

This year’s warrant includes several articles asking voters to add money to existing capital reserve funds, including $350,000 for road and bridge reconstruction, $75,000 for highway equipment, $10,000 for the replacement of computers and $9,000 for facility emergency repairs. Voters will also consider establishing a trust fund for cemetery repairs.

When and where: Northfield’s annual meeting will be held Saturday at 9 a.m. at the Pines Community Center on Dearborn Road.
