Seeing red in Hudson's budget

HUDSON

The school department’s fiscal 2008 budget request, which if kept in tact would require a property tax override, will be the topic of discussions between Executive Assistant Paul Blazar and Superintendent Sheldon Berman over the next several weeks.

The preliminary school budget is asking the town to pony up $26.4 million, a 7.5 percent ($1.84 million) increase over last year’s budget. But Blazar said the town can only afford to handle a 4.5 percent ($1.1 million) increase. Anything above that amount would require voters to approve a tax override.
