TRURO - Town council will present a $20-million budget heavy on road repair Monday that holds the line on the tax rate, says Mayor Bill Mills.
Some Truro residents will still end up paying more as assessments have jumped in town.
"I don't think there will be any major surprises," Mills told the Truro Daily News on Friday. "It's a fair budget and I think we're putting the money where people want it the most, and that's on the roads and sidewalks right now."
He said the engineering department completed a rating system ranking the roads in most need of repair. One project in the budget, Mills said, is Willow Street near Glenwood Drive.
The town has received a number of major reports in the past few months, including the Colchester Legion Stadium, Normal College and a new library.
"There will be nothing, as far as recommendations, for the library or Normal College this year," Mills said. "That was the trade off."
Mills said it was tough not to increase the tax rate, as there are lots of things the town would like to do.
