Proposal on Town's Contribution to the VNA
There will be a special article up for vote regarding an increase to the Town's contribution to the Visiting Nurse Association. The VNA provides the Town with an annual $18,000 payment in lieu of property taxes, and it has asked the Town for an additional appropriation, noting that unreimbursed care for Colchester residents totaled $122,905 for Fiscal Year 2013. Colchester voters will be asked to decide whether the Town should provide an annual contribution of $36,000 to the VNA rather than the current contribution of $18,000. The $18,000 payment in lieu of taxes would continue. This would increase the tax rate by 0.16 percent. Along with the budget, it would represent an increase of 3.06 percent.
