SPENCER ó Two Spencer aldermen have called a special meeting of the town board for 8 p.m. Tuesday to discuss the property tax rate and possible budget cuts.
The meeting will follow two others on Tuesday night ó Spencer Planning Board at 6 p.m. and a joint meeting of the Planning Board and Board of Aldermen at 7 p.m.
All meetings will be in Town Hall.
Aldermen Jeff Morris and Reid Walters called the 8 p.m. meeting. They want to discuss whether the board will maintain the townís current 60-cent property tax rate, which would require budget cuts.
If so, the board needs to start the budget planning process as soon as possible, Morris and Walters said in a letter to Mayor Jody Everhart and Town Manager Larry Smith.
The May deadline for Smith to present the budget may need to be moved earlier, they said.
The Planning Board at 6 p.m. will discuss the Snider Street rezoning, which aldermen sent back to planners for reconsideration after residents sued the town. They want to maintain the former residential zoning.
Then aldermen will hold their annual joint meeting with the Planning Board at 7 p.m. to discuss long-term planning.
Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-797-4264.
