The Weathersfield School District’s Annual Meeting will be held at 10 a.m on Saturday, March 2, at the Weathersfield School, and followed by the floor portion of Town Meeting at 12:30 p.m. that day. Voting on budgets and officers will be by Australian ballot from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5, at Martin Memorial Hall in Ascutney.

WEATHERSFIELD — Voters will be asked to approve a general fund and highway budget totaling almost $2.5 million, as well as $265,070 for the creation and operation of a new municipal fire department.

Other articles on the town warning include a proposal to borrow $250,000 over five years to resurface Center Road and $160,000 for a new grader.

The proposed $5.9 million school budget would result in education spending of $16,761 per equalized pupil, a 6.4 percent increase over the current school year.

Selectman Thomas Leach is facing a challenge from former Selectman David Fuller, a former dairy farmer, for a three-year seat. Michael Todd is unopposed for a two-year seat on the Selectboard. Longtime Selectman Peter Cole is not seeking another term on the board.

On the School Board, incumbent Jacqueline Antonivich is unopposed for a one-year term, and Kristen Bruso is unopposed for an open one-year seat. Nobody filed to run for a three-year seat on the board.
