Dig Into 2014-15 Budget Proposal Before Public Hearing

Go through the budget by line item and download a copy ahead of Monday's hearing.

Oxford residents and property owners are invited to a public hearing on the 2014-15 proposed budget at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Quaker Farms School.

The Board of Finance (BOF) budget includes a $1,585,286 increase in spending over the current adopted budget and a 3.53 percent increase to the mill rate, from 24.75 to 25.62.

Before the hearing, voters can dig into the expense and revenue budget proposals broken down in the databases above and download the budget worksheet for even more information on each department.

Users can choose a department/revenue stream or look at the total budget breakdowns, including the current BOF proposal, graphic displays showing year-over-year and more on the details pages.

Thank you Katie... But I am speaking about the Patch releasing it earlier than 6 hours, not the Town. The Patch is the media source where I turn to get my news, announcements, and information timely, not the meeting minutes of the Town Web Site. I refer to the Town Site to get the technicalities once I hear about it on the Patch. If I have to refer straight to the town site and dig through all their meeting agendas/minutes to get the information, it lessens the purpose of reading the Patch.
