Seekonk to Vote on $63 Million Budget


Seekonk voters will be asked to approve a $63 Million budget for the 2022 fiscal year. The May 10 town meeting will be held at 7 pm at Seekonk High School.

The 2021 budget is $60.9 million. The 2022 budget is a four percent increase over that figure.

The budget for the Seekonk schools is $31.3 million, a nearly three percent increase over last year’s budget of $30.4 million.

Voters will also need to decide whether to approve $19.6 million to fund the construction, renovation, and expansion of the Seekonk Public Library. The money will also pay for demolition, landscaping, paving, utility, and architectural and engineering services.

One warrant article calls for the appropriation of $1.5 million to pay for the cost of designing, planning, and construction of a new Department of Public Works facility on land owned by the town at 351 Fall River Avenue.

Another request is $2.7 million to fund the construction and renovation of the Seekonk Connolly Field and Mooney Track at Seekonk High School.

There are also bylaw changes and fund transfers to be voted on.

The complete warrant can be accessed on the town website: https://www.seekonk-ma.gov
