A $9 million town budget and money for school renovations are set to come before Chilmark voters at their annual town meeting Monday.

The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Chilmark Community Center. There are 29 articles on the warrant. Longtime town moderator Everett Poole will preside.

The annual town election is Wednesday in the community center. Polls are open from noon to 8 p.m. There are no contests on the ballot, but like every other Island town this year, Chilmark voters are facing a Proposition 2 1/2 override to cover increasing expenditures. Broken down into eight separate questions, the override adds up to $170,000, town administrator Timothy Carroll said.

He said separating items out was preferable to a general override and will shorten the budget review process at the town meeting.

The eight questions ask voters to exceed the state-mandated tax cap for regional initiatives covering education, human services and Island emergency response.

Chilmark selectmen held a public hearing on Tuesday to air the questions, including a request for an additional $79,000 for Tri Town Ambulance.

Selectman and board chairman Bill Rossi said the increase to the ambulance budget will help pay for a new full-time employee. Selectman Warren Doty said it will also support retirement benefits.

The largest town meeting spending request this year is for $227,500 to pay the town’s share of renovations to the heating and ventilation systems at the Chilmark School. The total amount needed is $284,000. West Tisbury voters approved their share at their annual town meeting last week. Aquinnah will vote on its share at its annual town meeting May 8. Mr. Carroll said the money will fund phase three of the $700,000 project.

He said under shared cost allocation for the project, Chilmark pays 80 per cent and West Tisbury and Aquinnah each pay 10 per cent.

The finance committee voted to not recommend approval on procedural grounds because the project did not go through public bidding, Mr. Carroll said. He said the committee was also concerned that the money was not required to be returned to the town if it was not all used for the project.

Mr. Carroll said the finance committee has since met with the school committee to work out some of the issues.

In another school spending request, voters will be asked to approve $70,000 to install a new big toy on the school playground.

Voters will be asked to approve a regional high school stabilization fund that aims to save funds for future capital improvements.

Chilmark will cast the deciding vote on the question, which was approved in Edgartown, Aquinnah and Tisbury, but rejected in West Tisbury and Oak Bluffs. The fund requires approval from four of the six towns to pass.

The finance committee has not recommended approval.

“It’s a great idea, but the devil’s in the details and fincom was unwilling to support an open-ended article,” Mr. Carroll said.

A request to increase the maximum size of guest houses in Chilmark from 800 to 1,200 square feet is expected to be withdrawn on the town meeting floor. The article was submitted by petition.

Rich Osnos, chairman of the Chilmark planning board, said the idea behind the change was to boost affordable housing, but it needed a fuller airing with the planning board.

Voters will be asked to place $112,000 into a general fire department, police vehicle and highway stabilization fund. Mr. Carroll compared the fund to accounts that have been used in the past to cap landfills and build schools.

A major $80,000 road repair request for the Menemsha hill triangle could be amended to add repairs for other parts of the town road pummeled by last month’s northeasters, Mr. Carroll said.

Voters will be asked to contribute $32,000 to the Kuehn’s Way affordable housing project in Vineyard Haven. The town has contributed more than $65,000 to the project to date.

Mr. Carroll praised the regional approach to affordable housing. “We’d like to have more affordable houses in Chilmark, but we understand you get more bang for your buck participating in other people’s projects,” he said.

Voters will also be asked to spend $17,000 as the town’s share of the regional adult education program, $24,000 for roof work on the town hall, and $15,000 to replace roofing on the North Road fire station.

A request for funding for the county emergency communications center has already been rejected by four towns and is expected to be shelved on the town meeting floor, Mr. Carroll said.

In the election Wednesday, incumbent selectman Bill Rossi is running unopposed.

The eight override questions on the ballot are as follows:

• $79,000 for the Tri Town Ambulance operating budget;

• $35,000 for the up-Island regional school district budget;

• $9,184 for the CORE program of thee up-Island council on aging;

• $5,453 for the Healthy Aging Task Force First Stop program;

• $8,163 for the Healthy Aging Task Force;

• $5,740 for the county substance abuse disorder program;

• $6,264 for county social services;

• $22,332 for the regional emergency communications center.
