Hooksett to vote today; polls open 6 a.m.-7 p.m.

HOOKSETT — Today is election day and the polls will be open at David R. Cawley Middle School from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Should all money articles, including the proposed town operating budget, be approved, the total municipal tax rate is expected to increase from $6.88 to $7.08 per $1,000 assessed value. That is an additional $50 on a $250,000 home.

The Budget Committee’s proposed $16,681,262 operating budget represents an additional $621,720, or a 3.87-percent increase over the last fiscal year. The default budget is $16,451,761.

Other articles being voted upon include a request for $91,884 for a full-time town engineer and an effort to align public service personnel insurance contracts. Additional money articles seek to add to capital reserve funds including $100,000 for town building maintenance and $100,000 for public works vehicles; $50,000 for fire apparatus; $50,000 for drainage upgrade; $30,000 for future revaluation; $20,000 for air pack and bottles; $20,000 for automated collection equipment; and $15,000 for parks and recreation facilities.
