School Warrant Article Review
The Budget Committee asked additional school budget questions and reviewed the School Board’s proposed warrant article. Details may be found in the meeting minutes here: https://litchfieldnh.gov/budget-committee-meeting-minutes/
The committee discussed the long-standing agreement between the School Board and the Budget Committee to return all funds not spent specifically from the special services budget to the tax payers. Once input from the School Board and legal counsel is obtained the committee will vote on whether to solidify that agreement in writing.
