The town’s proposed fiscal 2008 budget and the possibility of three overrides will be the subject of a joint meeting between the Board of Selectmen and Appropriations Committee Monday night.
April Town Meeting will be asked to approve increasing the municipal budget by 4.5 percent for a total of $14.18 million.
The school budgets include $9.46 million for Algonquin, $697,395 for Assabet Valley regional Technical High School and $16.9 million for Northborough public schools. The Northborough School Committee could also ask town meeting for a $219,434 operational override if Superintendent Rosemary Joseph can’t cut the budget enough.
Residents will also be asked to consider two debt exclusion overrides: $1.7 million in borrowing to expand the library and $495,000 for architectural designs for the new senior center.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the selectmen’s meeting room in town hall.
