School District budget to be slightly lower in 2010-2011
Reduction of 0.5% is a step in the right direction

GOFFSTOWN - On Thursday night, the Goffstown Budget Committee, by a vote of 11-3, reduced the school district budget by $191,975 from the previous year for fiscal 2010-2011.  The reduction comes at a time of lower student enrollment, a struggling economy and unemployment rates of over 10%.  

In sharp contrast to last year's school budgeting process, the committee's recommended budget was met with little resistance and even less fanfare.

"This slight reduction is a step in the right direction", said committee member Bill Gordon.

In addition to an unexpected revenue windfall, the school district also received grant money this year.

"It's nice to see that everyone seems to working together this year as opposed to last year," said committee member Guy Caron.  "This is the first time I can remember that the school's recommended budget is actually lower that the previous year.  And they didn't argue about it."
