Preston - The Board of Finance approved a proposed $10.6 million school budget and $3.3 million town budget Thursday, making no cut to the proposed school budget and some adjustments to the town budget to be presented to residents at a town meeting next Thursday.
The votes followed a two-hour public hearing dominated by discussion and support for the requested $10.6 million school budget, a 1.86 percent, $193,644 increase over this year's budget. About 40 people attended the hearing.
Board member Norman Gauthier cast the lone dissenting vote on the school budget, calling it "way too high." The board voted unanimously to approve the town budget after several changes.
Because the town conducted a property revaluation this year, the combined proposed budgets of $15 million, including debt services and capital expenditures, would appear to have a significant tax increase, from the current 19.43 mills to 24.21 mills.
The finance board voted to use $500,000 from the town's general surplus fund to offset tax increases.

Today, the internet has made the lives of insurance consumers much easier. With numerous comparison websites, it is now easy to browse a whole host of insurance companies and their quotes for your vehicle. However, if you’re looking for the best possible budget car insurance, there are several things that you may wish to bear in mind.
? When purchasing budget car insurance, the first consideration is, of course, price. However, this should not be your only consideration. Try to consider how much service you are getting for your money rather than simply how much you have to spend. Make sure that the policy you choose is not a false economy.
? During your search, you may come across companies that you are unfamiliar with. Many less well-known insurers provide budget car insurance and this can be off-putting to some customers. If you are unfamiliar with a company, it is a good idea to do a little research, as you may find that they are underwritten by a household name. Obviously, it is wise to make sure that your chosen insurer will not go under in the next six months, but unknown companies should not be discarded out of hand.
? Before committing to an insurance company, it is a good idea to understand how and when you can amend or alter details of your policy. Most companies allow you to request changes via the internet, which is, of course, the most convenient method.
? It is important that an insurer provides you with a price that fits your budget, but it is also important that the payment methods suit your financial situation. In other words, if you are unable to afford a lump sum annually, you may like to consider companies that offer monthly or bi-monthly payment options.
? Budget car insurance should not necessarily mean ‘basic car insurance’, so it is crucial to browse the entire market. Remember, many insurance companies provide various perks and extras that should all be considered when reviewing their policies.
