  • Q - What is the 10% rule?
    • A - The 10% rule states that the total amount appropriated at any annual meeting shall not exceed by more than 10% the total amount recommended by the budget committee for such meeting. The 10% number is based upon the budget committee's recommended operating budget along with any warrant articles recommended by the budget committee. See RSA 32:18.
  • Q - Why doesn't the budget committee vote their recommendations on all warrant articles?
    • A - The budget committee only votes on warrant articles that have appropriations attached to them. See RSA 32:5
  • Q - Can I amend a warrant article that does not have appropriations in order to add appropriations at town meeting?
    • A - No. All warrant articles that require appropriations must be discussed at the public hearing prior to deliberative session. See RSA 32:5
