Budget Votes Feb. 6

Voters in Braintree, Brookfield and Randolph will head to their respective polling places Tuesday, Feb. 6, to vote on a $7.78-million Randolph Union High School budget and a Randolph Technical Career Center budget of $2.54 million.

The RUHS budget is $87,969,or 1.14% higher than last year’s, while the RTCC increase is 1.93%, or $48,256.

Average school budgets in Vermont are increasing by more than 6%.

"When general inflation, increases in energy and increases in health insurance costs are considered, the administrations have done an excellent job of controlling costs," RUHS board members wrote in their annual report.

The RUHS and RTCC proposed budgets, reports from the board and administrators, and the warning for the Feb. 6 annual meeting of the Union High School District #2 are inserted in this week’s Herald, as the third section of the paper.

An informational session on the two budgets will be Monday, Feb. 5, 7:30 p.m., at the RUHS Murray Auditorium. The annual meeting, with election of school district officers, will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 6, after the polls close.

In next Tuesday’s balloting, voters in the three towns will also be asked to place $148,560 in surplus funds from the 2005-06 RUHS budget into a building maintenance fund.

Voters approved a similar article last year, placing $145,833 in 04-05 surplus monies in the fund. RUHS/RTCC board members and administrators have tapped the building fund this year as they ready a $10-million, school repair bond issue for a vote. That vote will likely be held in early summer.
