Antrim Town Administrator Galen Stearns fields questions about the proposed 2013 town budget at Antrim’s budget hearing on Monday night at the Town Hall. The proposed budget that will be voted on at Town Meeting on March 14 will be $3,425,954, a 5.6 percent increase from the 2012 actual budget. The town will also be voting on 14 warrant articles at Town Meeting, including a $1.675 million appropriation to build and equip a new police station. A $103,356 increase to the highway portion of the proposed budget is largely to help reconstruct another section of Elm Avenue, and for repairs to the downtown sidewalk from T-Birds to the post office, according to Stearns.
