WINDSOR — If all the warrant articles pass as proposed at the business portion of the annual Town Meeting on Saturday, residents should see the tax rate remain steady despite an increase in school expenses.

The meeting begins at 10 a.m. at Windsor Elementary School.

Windsor property owners pay $12.40 for each $1,000 in property valuation.

“We’re hoping to stay the same,” said Town Manager Theresa Haskell. The rate will not be set until July, she said.

The school budget, which was approved at the polls Tuesday, means Windsor will pay $1.5 million, an increase of 4.75 percent over the current year for its share of the Regional School Unit 12’s budget.

At Saturday’s meeting, residents will also be asked to spend $550,000 to pave or reconstruct parts of Windsor Neck, Coopers Mills and Griffin roads.

Selectmen and the budge committee recommend spending that amount, and Haskell said $400,000 to support the town’s expenses in the upcoming tax year could come from the undesignated fund balance.
