Beals voters approve school budget, fill empty offices, appropriate $26K

by Nancy Beal

Approximately 20 Beals Islanders came out for a special town meeting June 6 to consider a budget for Beals Elementary School brought by the school committee. In 18 articles, they approved $1,224,233, an amount that is $226,250 more than last year’s budget. The first payment on the recent energy overhaul of the school’s heating, ventilation, insulation systems and other improvements accounted for much of the increase. That payment--the second of 13--was $124,629. All but $13,703 of last year’s payment was paid out of Covid relief funds.
