Town Presents Balanced Budget for FY17
Robert Fucci-Millbury-Sutton Chronicle

Town Administrator Smith presented his final budget presentation for FY17.

Smith proposed an increase of 1.26 percent compared to the FY16 budget.

“The town side has a solid stabilization fund, funding the other post employment benefits trust, a fiveyear capital plan funded by the capital stabilization fund and using a limited one-time money for recurring costs, and the school department is getting closer to a sustainable budget with good class sizes,” he said.

According to the proposed plan, Sutton Public Schools would receive an increased appropriation of $428,000.

“The schools are getting closer to structurally balanced,” he said. “In fact, we are probably in the best fiscal situation in a long time.”

Among the changes made since the preliminary budget was proposed are:

Health care was estimated at 11.8%. “We worked with the IAC and made plan design changes resulting in a 6 percent increase in healthcare,” Smith said.

Property and casualty increased by 22 percent. “I have placed a placeholder of a $70,000 increase,” Smith said.

The town has appropriated Ch. 70 funds to the schools, making its current appropriation $428,820.

Sutton is budgeting for three students attending Norfork Aggie, an increase of one student so it increased that budget by $24,000.

The Blackstone Valley School appropriation came in at $182,500. “We had a placeholder at $220,000,” Smith said.
