Default Budget to be Set by Selectmen

The Salem Board of Selectmen return from a lengthy layoff for a regular meeting tonight, the first of four successive Mondays the board is scheduled to meet.

They'll convene in the Knightly Meeting Room of Town Hall at 7 p.m. for their first meeting since Nov. 5. Here is their agenda.

Of note, the board will discuss approving the 2013 town default budget. This is a new measure for the town with the 2012 adoption of the SB 2 form of town government.

On the March ballot, voters will be asked to approve the 2013 budget recommended by the Budget Committee. If it fails, a default budget would automatically go into effect.

Selectmen will also review a proposed license agreement between the town and Salem Caregivers for their use of space within Town Hall. Salem Caregivers is one of several organizations being displaced by the impending closure of the Foss School.

Salem Police will hold a public hearing regarding the acceptance of over $23,000 in grants from the N.H. Highway Safety Agency. 

Also, selectmen will discuss assuming the cost of streetlights at the intersection of Route 111 and Ermer Road.
