■Article 3 asks voters to raise $2.17 million for the town’s operating budget.

■Article 4 asks voters to raise $420,507 for the operation of the wastewater department. The amount is raised from user rates and doesn’t have an effect on the tax rate. The town does not anticipate an increase in wastewater rates this year.

■Article 5 asks voters to raise $282,194 for the operation of the water department. The amount is to be raised by water rates and will not have an effect on the tax rate. The town does anticipate an increase in the water rate this year.

■Article 6 asks voters to raise $10,000 for the Green Bridge Improvement Capital Reserve and $10,000 for Public Works Capital Reserve.

■Article 7 asks voters to raise a total of $45,000 for various expendable trusts. Of the total, $20,000 will be for the Pool Repair And Improvements Fund, $15,000 for the Fire Equipment Fund and $10,000 for the Police Cruiser Fund. The $10,000 for the police cruiser fund will be taken from the previous year’s unspent funds, and will not have an impact on the 2019 tax rate. The other two requests will be raised by taxation.

■Article 8 asks voters to raise $10,000 to add to the Wastewater Expendable Trust. The funds will be raised by water rates and will not impact the tax rate.

■Article 9 asks voters to raise $20,000 for the Water Expendable Trust Fund. The funds will be raised by wastewater rates and will not impact the tax rate.

■Article 10 asks voters to accept $44,000 in funds from the state in the form of an annual Highway Block Grant. These funds are a portion of the state’s highway revenues and do not impact the town’s tax rate.

■Article 11 asks voters to raise $42,000 for repairs to pool house. The funds will come from the Pool Repairs Expendable Trust , and have already been raised.

■Article 12 asks voters to raise $15,000 to purchase high-band radios for Fire Department. This will complete the purchase of radios when combined with funds from a similar warrant article last year.

■Article 13 asks voters to spend $9,000 on a propane generator, which will be used to power the highway garage in emergency situations.

■Article 14 asks voters to allow the operation of Keno lottery games in Greenville restaurants with a pouring license. There is at least one restaurant in Greenville interested in installing the game. A portion of the revenue from Keno is used to support full-day Kindergarten programs in the state. A town does not have to allow operation of the game in order to receive these funds. The Mascenic School District does not currently provide full-day Kindergarten.
