Chariho Budget Hearing 2018
What: The public hearing on the Chariho Regional School District’s 2018-2019 budget
When: Tuesday, March 6 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 $57.9 million budget was approved by the School Committee on February 13.
Charlestown would see an increase of 1.35 percent over last year. Charlestown will pay 12.7 million of the Chariho Budget after State aid is factored in. The school budget makes up about half of Charlestown’s overall budget. Richmond will pay 14.9 million and Hopkinton will pay 13.6 million. The number of students in each town affects the amount paid by each town.
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.
Should there be a problem with a quorum on March 6, the meeting will be continued until the same time and place on March 7th.
Assuming a quorum is reached on Tuesday, the school committee will adopt the budget on March 13, and an all-day budget referendum will take place on April 10 in each town.
