St. George special town meeting to solve tax error
St. George — St. George will hold a special town meeting Monday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. to vote on an article apportioning $55,000 from undesignated fund balance to cover a $55,000 error in the 2011 tax commitment.
The undesignated fund balance total is approximately $500,000, said Town Manager John Falla.
The error was noticed during an audit. The unaccounted funds originated from the March 2011 town meeting when citizens approved an additional $50,000 to keep the eighth grade at the St. George School for an additional year and $5,000 for fireworks.
The meeting will be held at the town office.
