  • VoteBudget Vote on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 - Please Vote Yes!

    There will be a vote on the proposed Town of Coventry budget on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 at the two firehouses. More on voting can be found at the Town website. More info on the budget may be found here.

     The proposed budget was unanimously approved a bi-partisan vote by the Town Council on a motion by Councilor Marty Milkovic (D) and seconded by Councilor John French (R). During deliberations, all Councilors worked diligently to make revisions to the Town Manager’s budget that take into account the impacts on taxpayers of inflation, stock market volatility, and energy costs. It is a bare bones budget with a 1.89% increase in the mil rate, meaning that in a time of record inflation Coventry’s tax rate is increasing at a fraction of that pace. The adopted budget includes broad reductions to both Town Government and Board of Education operating costs which will likely result in some reduction of services and programs. The Town Council is committed to continuing to seek grants and other funding to help reduce those impacts.

    Governor Lamont Had One Of The Highest Approval Ratings of Any Democratic Governor. “But the vast majority of governors, Lamont among them, are above water with positive net-approval ratings — the difference between voters who approve and disapprove, according to the University of Virginia Center for Politics. Lamont’s 22% is near the top among Democratic governors. Only John Carney of Delaware (26%) and Andy Beshear of Kentucky (23%) are doing better.”

    Tempatures over 90 degrees? Coventry Lake beaches closed? Town Manager John Elsesser knew what to do.  Working with our Fire/EMS Department and our Parks & Recreation Department, he arranged for cooling water to be sprayed over about 70 Coventry children at Laidlaw Park, much to their delight!  Ten Fire/EMS volunteers and Parks & Recreation staff participated.  John also passed out popsicles! 

    Thanks to John, Parks & Recreation Director Lesley Munshower, Fire Chief Bud Meyers, Emergency Management Director Jim McLoughlin and everyone involved.
