Quispamsis taxes

The new Quispamsis town council is not in the mood to raise taxes.

It held its first budget meeting on the weekend and the Telerahp-Journal reports staff presernted a proposal for $24 million budget and 6 cent increase in the property tax rate. By the end of the meeting, councillors had trimmed a million dollars and had the increase down to a cent.

The second budget meeting will be held December 6th….then the final approval should come two weeks later.
