Public hearing slated for tonight
The Lisbon Town Council will hold a public hearing tonight on the fourth proposed school spending plan proposed by the school committee for the 2015-16 fiscal year.
The council meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the town office.
This year, the council amended and reduced three earlier proposed budgets by the Lisbon School Committee, all of which have been rejected by voters in budget validation referendums since June. A majority of voters in each referendum indicated the opposition to the budget was because education spending proposed by the council was too low.
The school committee has proposed a $15,441,270 spending plan, including adult education, and would reduce taxes by $93,889.
