---- — The Budget Committee on Monday night will hold its public hearing on its proposed budget for 2013. The meeting will start at 6 p.m. at Seabrook Community Center on Route 1.

The hearing will focus on the committee’s recommended $18,711,049 budget, which is less than the 2012 budget of $18,853,820.

Selectmen recently approved a default budget of $18,696,705. The default budget will take effect only if voters at the polls March 12 reject the budget proposed by the Budget Committee.

Also on Monday, the Budget Committee will hold a hearing on the proposed Seabrook School District budget.

At 5:30 p.m., the committee will discuss money-related budget questions proposed by selectmen, department leaders or those submitting certified citizens’ petitions requesting money.

The Ladies Aid hosts its monthly suppers the second Saturday of each month.
