Superintendent's Budget Letter

Dear Citizens,

The RSU #71 proposed budget for 2017-18 is $27,209,790.48, a 2.517% aggregate increase over the 2016-17 budget. Because of sound fiscal management, RSU #71 will recognize an approximate $2 Million Dollar balance which will be carried forward to the next budget year. The school board has voted to use $1.5 Million Dollars of the carry forward funds to help reduce the impact of the initially proposed 2017-18 budget. Five Hundred Thousand Dollars will be placed in a designated fund to help pay for future capital construction and maintenance projects. Voters will be asked to approved an article at the Budget Validation Meeting to allow for this action. Read More...
