Insurance, other costs drive budget increase in Westborough

Posted by Ralph Ranalli February 25, 2007 06:48 AM


The town's budget for fiscal 2008 will jump 5.2 percent to $77.9 million, with fixed costs of like insurance and the cost of funding student attendance at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School in Marlborough accounting for most of the increase, according to a budget summary prepared by Town Coordinator Henry L. Danis Jr.

The budget is $3.9 million more than the current year, but would give less money to the Westborough schools than Superintendent of Schools Anne L. Towle has requested. Danisís proposed school budget is $35.2 million, while Towle has asked for $35.7 million.
