PEPPERELL — When the new fiscal year rolls in on July 1, diners will find themselves paying just a little bit more for prepared food.

Local meals tax will increase .75 percent, to seven percent. That adds up to 75 cents on a $100 bill.

Town Meeting approved the increase on May 2.

The town will get a report on how much was collected in the first quarter in October, said Town Administrator Mark Andrews. He estimated the revenues would be about $35,000 for fiscal year 2017, beginning in July.
