Chichester - 2 Saturdays Cost You 8 Million Dollars


Do you pay a tax bill, have kids in school, want your roads plowed or expect the police and fire departments to come when called? These things cost money, lots of it.  On March 7th and 14th Chichester residents will authorize the Selectman and School Board to collect and spend almost 8 Million of your dollars, over $3000 per resident.  Read that again, you and I must authorize all money to be spent, if we don’t it cannot be spent.  Are you concerned with your ever increasing tax bill, come and vote. Think something is being ignored and needs attention, come and vote. The budgets aside, there are other items that will be voted on that need your vote.


At Town Meeting (3/14) we will be voting on a decreasing budget, plus changes to the Road Agent Position and the Budget Committee.  I’m sure the roads and new ambulance will be discussed at length as well.  At School Meeting (3/7), we will vote on another budget increase, more control of the SAU budget, and a new Teacher’s contract, which no doubt will be a significant cost increase by itself.


These items will increase your tax bill by hundreds if not a thousand dollars or more. You might be surprised to know that less than 100 people attend most of these meetings.  Your vote counts, you can make a difference.  Is $8 Million worth a few hours of your time in March?  I hope so.  For more information please visit or contact me directly [email protected]

Letter To The Editor

2 Important Dates


Thursday, February 5th and Saturday, March 7th present opportunities for you to make a difference in our town.  Thursday, February 5th is the public hearing on the school budget which will be presented to you for your vote on Saturday, March 7th.


Our last several school board meetings have been very well attended by citizens.  As a board we appreciate you coming to educate yourself on Chichester’s budgeting process and for asking all of your excellent questions and making such positive suggestions.  That education and discussion continues on Thursday, February 5th at 6:00 PM at the school where we will once again listen to your suggestions as we present our budget to you. 


It is always important to be there to vote on your school budget. This year, how about joining so many of your neighbors at the public hearing to directly offer us your feedback prior to the final vote?  


We are looking forward to seeing you at 6:00 PM on Thursday, February 5th.  


Respectfully yours,

Your Chichester School Board
