After hearing from municipal officials about how the town will have less state revenue to work with in the coming year, residents here looked at the proposed budget — which had already been cut from last year, by selectmen — and decided to trim a little more.

That was the report this week from First Selectman Galen Larrabee, who said about 50 people attended the town’s annual meeting March 20. Last month, Larrabee had said selectmen hoped to cut $17,000 from last year’s budget total. Although he said the bottom line for this year’s budget had not been tallied as of March 23, he did offer some specific examples of where cuts had been made during the meeting.

The town usually appropriates $500 for dry hydrants, in case any work needs to be done to them. Larrabee said selectmen had proposed an increase in this line, because two hydrants were to be repaired this year, but that voters decided to cut the funding.

“So if it’s not volunteer [labor], it won’t be done,” said Larrabee.

When it came to the social service accounts, selectmen had simply taken the requests from the various agencies and included them in the report. That way, voters would be able to do as they wished with them. Those who attended Saturday’s meeting, Larrabee said, decided to fund all the requests that were presented at 60 percent of the original amount.

Voters also agreed to eliminate a budget line covering plow truck maintenance, Larrabee said, as the town now contracts out snow removal.

In other business, voters gave selectmen the green light to sell an old, modular classroom that had been given to the town by MSAD 3. Larrabee said it would have been too expensive for the town to try and repair the building to the point where the town could use it, so the decision was made to put it out to bid. That process can begin, now that voters have given their blessing. Larrabee said the structure measures approximately 28 feet by 62 feet.

In municipal elections held the day before the meeting, Larrabee was the only person on the ballot. He was seeking re-election to his post on the board of selectmen, and he was easily re-elected — nearly unanimously. Thirty residents cast ballots, Larrabee said, and the tally was 29-1 in his favor.
