CORINTH — Voters approved all articles at an outdoor Town Meeting held on Tuesday and also elected officers at the ballot box. 

From the floor during the meeting that was held outside the town offices, Corinth voters added $250 to the general fund budget to account for funds voters approved under a separate article for the Vermont Family Network. The addition brought the total to about $411,000, of which $223,361 is to be raised by taxes.

As warned, voters also approved spending $791,800 for the highway fund, which is the same as the previous year. In addition, they approved $123,100 for the highway capital equipment fund. 

Voters also decided to raise $15,000 for a bridge reserve fund; $5,000 for an emerald ash borer fund; $1,200 each in compensation for Selectboard members; $500 for the Planning Commission; $2,100, including $600 from taxes, for the Conservation Commission; $5,000 for the Town Hall Improvement Fund; and $3,000 for a computer equipment reserve fund.

Nick Kramer defeated Raymond Moulton for a three-year seat on the Selectboard, 103-36. Incumbent Carl Demrow was reelected over Leo Williams Sr. for a two-year Select Board seat, 124-12.

Incumbent Sarah Nolin defeated a challenge by Michael Tkac for a three-year term on the Waits River Valley School District, 100-27.
