RAYMOND — Superintendent Tina McCoy would like to share the following statement:
“We want to let residents know we’ve shared an incorrect tax rate impact for the proposed operating budget during the recent informational presentations and a local newspaper article over the last few weeks. The estimated tax rate impact of this warrant article is an increase of $0.23 per thousand, not a decrease of $0.11 per thousand as was previously presented. This was due to an error made during the budget planning process when calculating the revenue the District will receive.
The error was detected the day prior to the Deliberative Session on Saturday, Feb. 8, where we presented residents with the corrected estimated tax rate impact. We wanted to share this additional statement in order to clarify for the stakeholders who were unable to attend.
This does not change the amount of the proposed operating budget, which is $25,902,672.
The total tax rate impact will be determined after the Town Meeting Vote on Tuesday, March 10.”
