Dear Citizens,

The RSU #71 proposed budget for 2018-19 is $27,021,744.39, a 2.4876% aggregate increase over the 2017-18 budget. The budget aggregate increase is due to three factors: (1) RSU #71 will be paying the first principle payment on the BAHS, THMS, and CASS ESCO Project. (2) RSU #71 will be making (2) two interest payments for the BAHS Renovation/Construction Project. (3) The state has increased the mil rate from 8.19 to 8.51. This will cause a significant change in the amount the local communities are required to raise in order to receive the $8,322,727 in state subsidy. Lastly, we were notified by Anthem, our health insurance carrier, there would be no increased cost in our health insurance next year  Read more....
