SHARON — The annual town meeting will be held at Town Hall on Friday, May 13, at 8 p.m.
Taxpayers will vote on the proposed education and municipal spending plans for fiscal year of 2011-12, which begins July 1.
The proposed municipal budget is $3,567,700.
The total education budget, including Sharon’s portion of the Region One budget, is a total of $6,274,426.
The municipal budget is available for the public to see at Town Hall. The education budget can be found at Sharon Center School.
In addition to the budget vote, taxpayers will also vote on the expenditure of funds, including Town Aid Road funds for bridge and road repair; up to $130,000 from the equipment/replacement fund for highway equipment; up to $7,900 from the Sharon Cemetery Fund; funds from state, federal and local grants for educational purposes and any other funds or grants for general use in the town.
And taxpayers will vote on whether or not to adopt the proposed five-year capital improvement plan, copies of which can be found at Town Hall.
