HOLLISTON

Based on "conservative" revenue estimates, Holliston faces a budget shortfall of between $1.2 million and $1.5 million for the 2009 fiscal year which begins in July, Town Administrator Paul LeBeau said recently.

To close the gap town departments would have to reduce their budgets by about 2 to 2.5 percent, LeBeau said. The town has not ruled out the possibility of asking voters to raise taxes through a Proposition 2 1/2 override, he said.

"This early in the process, I think all possibilities will be on the table," LeBeau said.
