WORCESTER — Residents at town meeting voted in favor of a $573,655.80 budget Tuesday morning.
The budget was reduced by $24,100 by the Select Board before the voters approved it, because the town no longer needed to hire an assessor as residents volunteered to do the job. Voters also approved $17,525 in support of Kellogg-Hubbard Library — the full amount requested — and $950 in support of the Montpelier Senior Activity Center.
Voters approved a budget of $1,198,444 for Doty Memorial School.
From the floor, Shawn McManis was elected constable, Earlene Forbes was elected cemetery commissioner, Sandra Ferver was elected tax collector, and Michael Echart was elected grand juror and town agent, all for one-year terms.
By Australian ballot, Cheri Goldstein was elected in a write-in vote to serve the last two years of a three-year Select Board seat; James Lamb ran unopposed for a three-year board seat; Alan Erdossy was elected by write-in to a three-year term as lister; Chani Waterhouse ran unopposed for a three-year school director seat; Rebecca Heintz ran unopposed for a one-year school director seat; and Katie Winkeljohn ran unopposed for a three-year term on the U-32 board.
Ferver also ran unopposed for one-year town clerk and town treasurer terms.MORE IN Central Vermont
