            (2-1)  The Following Communication: (H.P. 1069)

 

TOWN OF MONTVILLE

 

The following resolution was adopted at the Montville Annual Town Meeting on March 30, 2013:

 

WHEREAS, the Governor's unprecedented biennial budget proposal places towns in an untenable and uncertain fiscal position during their budget planning; and

 

WHEREAS, the proposed cuts in various programs will shift costs to towns, whose only major means of raising revenue is property taxes; now, therefore, be it

 

RESOLVED: that we, the people of the Town of Montville assembled at our annual town meeting on March 30, 2013, call upon the Legislature of the State of Maine to reject these proposals, identify less harmful cost savings, and raise revenue in an equitable fashion to avoid this tax shift onto the property owners of Montville and other Maine cities and towns.
