Tax impact of 2014 articles

No other articles require a new appropriation for 2014.

If all articles with appropriation pass, the Town tax rate would increase from $3.54/thousand of valuation to $3.91/thousand of valuation. For a home valued at $300,000, this would mean an additional $111 in taxes.

Note that these impacts calculate from zero — so, the operating budget article, for instance, is not $3.58 on top of the rate paid last year, but $3.58 in total.
