Town Meeting: Shewsbury

Town budget
Proposed $3,451,611 up more than four fold from last year’s $797,706, but the amount to be raised by taxes is only $524,501, up 4.9 percent or $24,283 from last year’s $500,218. The overall increase is largely due to FEMA-reimbursable flooding expenses.

School budget
Proposed $1,004,392, up $61,705 or 6.5 percent from last year’s $942,687.

Contested races
There are no contested races.
