BARTON—The Barton Select Board met on January 5 and approved budget requests that will be presented to voters on Town Meeting Day, March 7.  The select board budget will be about $89,000 less that that approved in 2022 — $723,014 as compared to last year’s budget request of $811,972.

On the other hand, the road budget, if approved, will rise nearly $217,000 — from the $989,044 asked for in 2022 to the 2023 request of $1,205,735.

The figures were laid out by Town Clerk and Treasurer Kristin Atwood, who gave in-depth explanations as she worked her way through the pages of numbers.
