Danville Town Warrant

(Continued)

Discussion: The Operating Budget this year is 6.7% above last year's Operating budget. This budget includes salary adjustment due to a MRI Salary study that has been long overdue to ensure that Town employees are compensated fairly and adequately relative to other Towns and the private sector. Other increases are due to an increase in the number of elections, medical benefits, cemetery expansion, Welfare, NH Retirement contribution, and the Library.

Article 2012-6 Protection of Personnel Equipment Capital Reserve Fund

To see if the Town will raise and appropriate the sum of Eight Thousand Dollars ($8,000.00) to be added to the Protection of Personnel Equipment Capital Reserve Fund previously established for the future replacement of Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) to protect firefighters.

Recommended by the Board of Selectmen (5-0)

Recommended by the Budget Committee (8-0)

Discussion: This fund was established to provide required, periodic replacement of FD personnel safety equipment. The end-of-year 2011 balance: $21,776.67. Estimated tax impact: $0.024/thousand.

Article 2012-7 Fire Department Vehicle Capital Reserve Fund

To see if the Town will raise and appropriate the sum of Thirty Thousand Dollars ($30,000.00) to be added to the Fire Department Vehicle Capital Reserve Fund previously established.

Recommended by the Board of Selectmen (5-0)

Recommended by the Budget Committee (8-0)

Discussion: This fund was established to provide for future FD vehicle purchases. The 2011 end-of-year balance in this fund is $109,845.76. As with all capital reserve funds, setting smaller amounts of funds aside now will help offset much higher costs when it becomes necessary to replace our existing vehicles. This article is part of the CIP (Capital Improvement Plan) of the Town of Danville Master Plan. Estimated tax impact: $0.092/thousand.

Article 2012-8 Cemetery Capital Reserve Fund

To see if the Town will raise and appropriate the sum of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) to be placed in the Cemetery Capital Reserve Fund for future cemetery expansion.
