Annual meeting and budget vote looms in Ledyard

Ledyard — Next week marks the annual Town Meeting and budget vote.

Officials note there are a couple of changes in this year's process. The annual meeting on Monday, May 17, can be attended either in person or remotely via Zoom at, or audio only by telephone can be accessed at 1 (646) 558-8656. The meeting ID number is 992 0672 3840 and passcode is 820981.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the high school auditorium. It will be adjourned to a townwide referendum the following day. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Unlike previous years, there is only one polling place: the Town Hall Annex. Absentee ballots can be obtained by contacting the town clerk's office at (860) 464-3257.

The $60,295,817 proposal for the 2021-22 fiscal year increases spending by 0.27%, while reducing the mill rate by 3.56%. Town officials say most taxpayers will see their tax bills go up due to recent property revaluations. The education budget stands at $33,671,969, a 1.45% increase over current spending.
