Clarksburg Voters to See Reduced Budget at Town Meeting
Clarksburg voters at town meeting on Wednesday will see a revised budget for fiscal 2021 that would reduce it overall by about $50,000 and raise the estimated tax rate by a much lower figure.
That's if the voters approve both the budget and the purchase of a new truck for no more than $250,000.
Select Board Chairman Ronald Boucher had been against considering the truck and adding $50,000-plus in debt annually for the next five years.
However, after consultations with Northern Berkshire School Union Business Administrator Jennifer Macksey, he believes that the purchase is now within reach.
The new truck and its wing plow would replace a 2002 dump truck that's been frequently in the shop racking up costly repairs.
