SEARSMONT — The town will hold a public hearing on its 2022 municipal budget on Tuesday, Feb. 8, in the Searsmont Community Building at 6 p.m. The budget will be presented to voters for approval at town meeting on April 2.

“This is an opportunity for Searsmont’s residents to be heard as we present preliminary budget figures for the coming year,” Selectman Arlo Redman III said. “The selectmen and town departments were able to hold the line on expenses last year during COVID-19 and this year’s numbers will be an increase over last year’s. That is why we are looking forward to hearing what the town’s residents want to tell us.”

The budget hearing will be held in the lower level of the Community Building, 37 Main St. S. The hearing follows the regular monthly 5 p.m. Searsmont selectmen’s meeting. Attendees for both the hearing and meeting may attend masked and in person, or by Zoom.

Call the Searsmont Town Office at 342-5411 to receive Zoom login and password information.
