BROWNVILLE - Because of action taken Monday at the annual town meeting, residents may see an increase in the mill rate of 42 cents per $1,000 valuation in the 2004-2005 year.Residents chose to prepare for the future by adopting the budget committee's recommendation for highway reserve funds of $15,800, rather than the $5,000 proposed by selectmen to keep the mill rate current. Residents took a middle ground stance on funds for administrative capital reserves. Although selectmen had recommended $3,500 for the account and the budget committee had proposed $5,000, residents voted to raise $4,200.
