BURKE — Select Board members voted unenthusiastic support for proposed town and highway budgets on Wednesday. Meeting via video conference, Chair Christine Emmons and Selectman Joe Allard voted in favor of a budget that proposes to spend $2,413,203 to cover general fund and highway department needs in 2022. Last year the amount approved by voters was $2,110,479. In calling for the vote, Emmons voiced her support and then asked Allard if he approves of the budget. The town’s third selectman, Ford Hubbard, was not at the meeting. Emmons said he was very involved in earlier budget preparation conversations, and she felt he was on board with the spending plan.
