Goffstown voters to discuss school spending
The meeting will begin at 10 a.m. in Goffstown High School auditorium. The snow date is Monday, Feb. 3, at 7 p.m.
The proposed budget, if approved, would mean a tax rate of $14.58 per $1,000 assessed property value, an increase of 88 cents from 2013-14.
The proposed budget’s tax impact on a $250,000 home would be about $220; the default budget would mean $144 more in taxes for a $250,000 home.
• $117,299 for a collective bargaining contract with support staff from July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2017. The first year of the contract would cost $95,144, with $22,155 in grant-funded positions.
• The new AREA agreement with New Boston. The committee was made up of three school board members from each district and was approved Jan. 16 by the state Department of Education. The Goffstown and New Boston school boards unanimously recommended bringing the article to their respective districts.
“They placed about 2½ percent in a contingency fund, and the School Board is able to give some tax relief in 2015 to offset the costs of the contracts,” said Balke, adding the district’s return on investment is “incredibly strong.”
