by $672,000. However, he added, the state educa- tion property tax has increased for Londonder- ry by 19 cents, from $2.20 to $2.39, and to achieve a zero tax impact, the bud- get would have to be fur- ther reduced by $616,133. Total cuts to reach a zero tax impact would be $1,287,571. Greenberg made a list of possible reductions, according to priority, and divided them into two lev- els. Level One reductions, divided into sections A, B and C, would if enacted result in a zero property tax increase on the local level. Level Two reduc- tions, also divided into A, B and C, would if enacted mitigate the 19 cent increase in the statewide education property tax, or SWEPT. The first group of cuts would if enacted result in $671,438 of sav- ings; the second group, $616,133 of savings. But the savings come at a cost, Greenberg
someone in open garage and scared off into woods toward Boyd Road. Checked area, vehicle in area, and started K9 search. Upon investiga- tion, officers believe it was an animal that ran into the woods. Caller never saw an actual sus- pect.
9:31 a.m. Criminal mis- chief to piece of construc- tion equipment on Priscil- la Lane.
“Any significant action,” he said, “could severely impact our abilities to provide programs and services.”
All the items in Level
One were proposed cuts, with the exception of charging for high school parking, a possible rev- enue source. Some possi- ble cuts include summer school, at a savings of $78,123; middle school and freshman sports, $13,500, $85,200 and $7,100 respectively; high school co-curricular radio and cable TV, $61,324; and elementary and middle school music, $23,508 and $10,064 respectively. Possible cuts in Level
Two, to negate the impact of the SWEPT, include a District Office reception- ist position, possible $44,414 savings; middle school librarian position, possible $64,419 savings; high school summer school, possible $41,957 savings; and high school transportation, $90,000. Another item in Level Two was closing the

buildings at 5 p.m., Green- berg said. The district could save $130,000 in energy, he said.
The high school park-
ing charge would be an- other $60,000 in revenue, Greenberg said, with 400 parking spaces and stu- dents paying $75 per semester for the privilege of parking. “Am I recom- mending this? No - but the scenario was, ‘What would happen if...’” he said. Board member Steve
Young suggested raising the rental rates for out- side groups. Currently, he said, the rental rates only cover the cost of custodi- ans, not wear-and-tear. Business Manager
Peter Curro said 75 per- cent of the after-hours use of the district’s six school buildings is by local groups. Greenberg said that in looking for areas to cut from, he and the staff tried to minimize the impact to “core programs,” those that directly affect education. It depends, Greenberg said, “on what level of programs and services

you want to provide. We have laid out the costs.” Budget Committee mem-
ber Dan Lekas said, “A lot of people ask me, ‘Can we reduce the buying of some of the newer things?’ Do we really need new gym curtains? Can we get along with five Smart Boards instead of nine?” Greenberg responded
that preventive mainte- nance is also important. The district is looking to replace computers, for example, and the ones they are hoping to replace are “broken more often than not.” The person- hours taken up and the instructional time lost, he said, “makes it less expen- sive to replace them.” And, he said, unattend- ed maintenance needs often end up costing more. Young warned against cutting too much. This year the deliberative ses- sion will not require a quo- rum, he said, “and if the budget is not low enough, people will demand a lower one; and if it’s too low, they’ll demand that
Londonderry warrant for four counts of Issuing Bad Checks. Bail was set at $2,000 cash, which he was unable to post.

we raise it. We need a rea- sonable budget.” The board settled on the working number of $64,716,379 for an operat- ing budget to bring before the voters. The board voted 5-0 to accept this figure, which is $50,000 less than Greenberg’s first operating budget figure, with the $50,000 coming from one of his proposed savings, removing $50,000
for summer construction projects.
The new figure is $356,209 less than the default budget, which will be $65,072,588. The board’s next regu- lar meeting is Tuesday, Jan. 17, at 7 p.m. in the School District meeting room. The meeting will not be in the Moose Hill Meeting Room due to a conflict.
