The budgets will be voted on during the March2013 elections. Any changes be implemented on July1, 2013. While it begins in 2013 it is reerred to as theFY 2014 budget. The selectmen and the school boardtake turns each year as to who presents frst to thecommittee, this year it is the budget committee.The Hudson School District is proposing a budget o $48,026,049 or the FY 2014 year, which according tothe School district executive summary is an increase o 4.46 percent.What that means or the homeowner is an increaseo 79 cents per thousand o property evaluation. Aterthe recent reevaluation, the average home in Hudson isprojected to be $250,000 in property value, which inround dollars and cents means your tax bill will go up$197.50; this is an increase o $2,049,684 over the FY2013 budget. Any house owner can fnd their currentevaluation on top o the bill you received Mondayin the mail or can visit the town website http://www.hudsonnh.gov/docs/as/as-new-to-old-value-location.pd.Some o the increases in the budget are have todo with the personnel area, Salaries and Beneftsrom previously approved contracts, which includeretirement system contributions and increase in HealthInsurance costs will amount to a projected $1,487,089portion o the $2.049 million jump, with the balancebegin made up as ollows: Ofce Expenses $9,372,Supplies $108,817, Contracted Services, $177,852,Educational Resources $188,425, Furniture $11,562,Proessional Development $38,959 and Equipment$111,560 adding an increase projected or Utilities o $47,485 and Debt service o $36,467. To oset some o these increases there are revenue increase rom impactee collected by the planning board o $150 and someadjustment in past health insurance premium paid dueto a court ruling.This budget includes salaries and benefts orthree positions not unded or flled in prior years butapproved in prior budgets and two new positionsboth needed to meet Individual Education Plans (IEP)o students, these total $259,784.
