Board finalizes town budget

Final numbers show little more than 1 percent tax increase

— —The board unanimously authorized the renewal of its $150,000 Sheldon Road bridgework bond anticipation note.

—Codes enforcement officer Debbie Williams told the board there has lately been a “rash” of people undertaking construction projects in the town without having permits for the work. “It’s been a common thing lately, and is just very frustrating to me,” Williams said. She said she’s had four such instances of this in the past two weeks.

Williams said she typically doubles the permit fee for such violations, but she urged the board to consider quadrupling the fee in order to make an impact. “Doubling doesn’t seem to do much,” she said.
