Londonderry voters to consider $27.5 million town budget


Voters will be asked to establish a capital reserve fund for the Cable Access Center to buy future equipment at a cost of $100,000. A fund balance would be used for this with no tax impact to residents.

Also on the ballot will be a request to raise and appropriate $490,423 from the police outside detail fund already in place to be funded from users of the outside detail services.

Sewer maintenance is on the warrant with a request to spend $2.6 million on construction, payment of interest, management, maintenance and operation of newly constructed sewer systems. Services would be funded through user fees and would not require any local property tax support.

In addition to the town budget, voters will choose town councilors, a town clerk/tax collector, Budget Committee members, library trustees and a town treasurer.

Only two races, town clerk/tax collector and a two-year Budget Committee positions are contested. Incumbent town clerk Meg Seymour goes up against Patti Hanley Maccabe for the job. Gary Vermillion and Glenn Douglas square off for the Budget Committee position.

Incumbent Town Councilors John Farrell and Tom Dolan are unopposed for two three-year terms.

Newcomers Mark Aronson and Ted Combes are running for two open three-year Budget Committee seats. Incumbent library trustees Pauline Caron and Robert Collins, along with newcomer John Curran, are seeking three three-year terms.

Incumbent town treasurer Kathy Wagner is unopposed for another three-year term. There are no candidates for the three-year term as Trustee of Trust Funds.

Polls are open in Londonderry on March 12 at the high school gym on Mammoth Road from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
