Chariho Budget Hearing
What: The public hearing on the Chariho Regional School District’s 2017-2018 budget
When: Tuesday, March 7 at 7:30 pm
Where: Chariho Middle School Auditorium
Why: A minimum of 25 voters from each town are needed to create a quorum
The $57.2 million budget was approved by the School Committee on February 7 after budget cuts of $311,000.
Charlestown would see an increase of 1.5 percent over last year. Charlestown will pay $14.3 million of the Chariho Budget. The school budget makes up more than half of Charlestown’s overall budget.
Each Chariho town must have 25 voters present to reach a quorum to vote on the budget. If a quorum is not achieved, the meeting will be postponed. Please try to attend this hearing.
Assuming a quorum is reached on Tuesday, the school committee will adopt the budget on March 14, and an all-day budget referendum will take place on April 11 in each town.
