Two new ovens were purchased for the middle school at a cost of $30,000. That purchase took another bite out of the budget a year earlier than expected, Curro said.
Londonderry officials hope to get some much-needed school renovations done.
In addition to the general fund budget, there are several articles headed to the warrant, including a $4 million 10-year bond request to pay for renovations and construction of buildings if and when they are needed.
Projects deemed most important if that bond should pass include major roof work and replacement at the middle school and high school, paving projects at Matthew Thornton Elementary and Moose Hill School, and field improvements around the district.
Voters rejected a similar proposal last year.
Londonderry’s school budget public hearing is set for Jan. 16 at 7 p.m. at the town offices.
