To The Daily Sun,
The Alton School Deliberative Session, on Jan. 30, 1 p.m. and the Alton Town Deliberative Session, Feb. 3 at 7 p.m., are two very important meetings for residents to attend.
For months the selectmen, department heads, Budget Committee and School Board have been creating new budgets and warrant articles. These budgets and warrant articles have a direct link to the money you'll have to pay for taxes. At the Deliberative Sessions, individuals are able to stand and make motions to increase or decrease spending. Every resident then votes on the motions. Without your involvement, nothing changes and if you don't want your taxes to increase, come to the Deliberative Sessions. The same goes for those wishing for increased taxes.
Without resident participation, the same few people control the outcome for town and school operations and budgets. Please consider making the time to
attend these important meetings and participate in how the town and school can spend your tax dollars.
