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.
