March is Meeting Month

It’s March… and that means it is time for annual meetings and town voting!  Voters will decide on operating budgets and other major issues for the year at these three meetings and on town voting day. The people who attend the meetings make the decisions; this is a great chance to become informed and to participate in the issues and spending directly affecting your town.

 

 

 

On March 3, the Hollis Brookline Cooperative School District Annual Meeting is at 7 pm at the Hollis Brookline High School.  A major issue to be decided at this meeting is the apportionment formula between to the two towns that is used to calculate how much each town pays towards the middle school and high school costs.  The apportionment formula can have a major impact on taxes and opinions of fairness on sharing costs.  See the entire warrant article (all of the issues to be voted on) at http://www.sau41.org/hbcsd-annual-meeting and click on year 2014.

 

On March 4, the Hollis School District will hold its Annual Meeting at 7 pm at the Hollis Brookline Middle School.  The operating budget, professional staff salaries, and support staff salaries are among the issues to be voted on at this meeting.  See the entire warrant article at http://www.sau41.org/hsd-annual-meeting and click on year 2014.

 

On March 11, town voting will be held at Lawrence Barn from 7 am to 7 pm.  Elect school board members, selectmen, budget committee members, and other positions; and vote on planning board issues.

On March 12, the Hollis Annual Meeting will be held at 7 pm at the Hollis Brookline High School, to determine the town budget for the coming year.  Along with town expenses, we will have the opportunity to have Hollis make a statement about corporate cash and its outsized influence in our political system.  Article 18 states that Hollis will call upon Congress to move forward a constitutional amendment that 1) guarantees the right of our elected representatives and of the American people to safeguard fair elections through authority to regulate political spending, and 2) clarifies that constitutional rights were established for people, not corporations.  See the entire warrant article at http://www.hollisnh.org/announce/townmeeting/WarrantFinal.pdf.
