Message from Steven N. Wawruck, Jr., First Selectman

                                                                                                                                              steve-wawruck
On June 2nd, the polls in Windsor Locks will be open to vote on the Town Budget from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. with voting taking place in Dist 1 at Town Hall and Dist 2 at the High School.

Some pertinent facts in relation to the Budget:

For the second year in a row we have seen a decrease in our overall Grand List which in turn yields less revenue thus the shortfalls in this year’s budget process.

The overall proposed budget is $1,051,000 less than the current year’s budget.

The proposed General Government Operating Budget is $861,000 less than the current budget.

 The proposed Education Budget came in at a “0” percent increase for the second year in a row.

A portion of the Fund Balance, $1,038,000 was used to pay for one time Capital projects. The remaining Fund Balance is still within our policy guidelines of maintaining 18% - 20% funding.

An increase in the mil rate of .56 mils is proposed to offset the remainder of revenue needed to maintain the current level of services for all residents.

The budget is not one of excess; the Municipal Solid Waste (garbage) contracts were renegotiated with savings of over $100,000 from the previous multi-year contract. Savings were also realized with signing contracts for gasoline and diesel fuels when prices were at lower levels earlier this year. Most Boards and Commissions met the demand of the Finance Board with budgets at “0” or less than “0”.

Also, Public Works employee position was not funded and reduced funding for some services were made to contain costs.

The Boards and Commissions started their budget process in October of last year and the Board of Finance started deliberations in February, meeting every Tuesday and Wednesday night, up to the end of April, to present the Budget you will vote on for June 2nd.

I ask every resident to look at the budget in its entirety and seek the detail to make a conscious decision before casting your vote.

Please VOTE on June 2nd
