LITTLETON — Town officials were able to keep the tax rate flat and use federal stimulus funding to pay for bigger ticket items, including a new truck for the highway department, that otherwise would have been placed as articles on the March 2023 town meeting warrant.

“We were able to bring the tax rate down to exactly what it was last year, $23.06 per thousand,” Select Board Chairman Roger Emerson said during the board’s Nov. 14 meeting. “There will be no increase for next year.”
