County budget wins approval

NORTH HAVERHILL—The Grafton County legislative delegation approved a nearly $50 million operating budget for 2022-2023 during a meeting on June 24.
The vote was 17-0 with several members not in attendance. Although spending will increase by more than $1 million over the current year, the amount to be raised in property taxes will decrease for the second straight year.
Also on Friday, efforts to implement a delegation-led assessment and review of county facilities, including the farm and courthouse in North Haverhill, did not move forward.
