GREENVILLE, Maine — The Greenville municipal and school budgets will be scrutinized on Tuesday, June 1, during the annual town meeting in the Oakes Auditorium.

The school budget will be aired first during the 7 p.m. meeting. If the meeting is not completed Tuesday night, the town meeting will continue on Wednesday night.

Municipal elections will be held on June 8.

The total school budget of $3,323,214 is down from the current year by $82,212, according to Union 60 Superintendent Heather Perry. The union saw a reduction in subsidy of $11,989.

“Overall, the school budget is down in expenditures, but the impact to taxpayers is going to be up in Greenville and Beaver Cove,” Perry said Friday. In Greenville, that impact was affected by property values and a shrinking fund balance, she said.

The remaining Union 60 towns of Willimantic, Kingsbury Plantation and Shirley will see a decrease.

The municipal budget of $1,052,544 reflects a decrease of $7,670 from the current year. With the school, county and municipal budget, the mill rate is expected to increase to $11.62 per $1,000 property valuation, or a 1.04 percent increase.
