Town Report Update

In reviewing the 2014 budget report in preparation for Town Meeting several discrepancies were discovered.  The revised Multi-Year Budget Comparison pages for both the General Fund and Highway fund are available here.  This revision will replace pages 45 to 51 in the Town Report and the changes will be discussed at Town Meeting.  The Calculating the 2015 Projected Municipal Tax Rate page has also been revised to reflect these changes and is available here and replaces page 26.  The Town Clerk has printed copies of these documents and they will also be available at the Town Fair on Sunday and at Town Meeting on Tuesday.

Candidate Petitions due by January 26th

Candidate petitions are due by January 26th and there are still several positions that are unfilled. If you have an interest in either the Monkton Central School Board, the Planning Commission or becoming a Russell Memorial Library Trustee please stop in to Town Hall and get a candidate petition. Of course you can run for any of the elected positions by getting a petition signed by 1% of the registered voters (14 signatures). All of these positions are great opportunities to give back to the Town of Monkton and help shape its future.
