That's a great idea.  I know we share expenses for the cost of election
ballots for school board positions and budgets but what you are saying
is a great idea.  I certainly think it is worth proposing!!

Subject: School Districts sharing costs of Nemrc--and listers?


Hi everyone,

For many years now, it's been mutually agreed between the Town and the
school board here in Guildhall that the School reimburses the town for
half (50%) of all Nemrc costs, ie the agreement itself, the disaster
recovery plan, any trainings or consultations associated with Nemrc,
etc.  This of course makes a lot of sense, not only because the school
books are kept on nemrc accounting modules, but because nemrc provides
the grand list and Tax Admin tools we need to collect both municipal and
school taxes.


However, of late I've also been wondering (I'm a relatively new
Treasurer, just 1.5 yrs now), if it would also make sense for the school
to pay for half (or at least some portion) of the listers' budget.
After all, pretty much everything the listers do and everything they
spend is related to raising municipal and school taxes.  (Obviously, the
school board would have to approve such an expenditure.)


How is this handled in other towns?  Thanks
