A budget workshop meeting is being held in Danbury Wednesday night. 


The Board of Education hopes to present to City officials their arguments for a proposed $135 dollar budget.  The 5.5 percent increase is about $7 million.  In the recent past, the City Council and the Mayor have only granted a portion of what Board of Ed members has requested.  Mayor Mark Boughton is expected to release his budget for the coming fiscal year in April.  


School officials say smaller-than-requested increases have not kept pace with enrollment and cuts in state funding.  Danbury is last in per-pupil funding of the state's 169 cities and towns. 


The workshop Wednesday is at 6pm at the administrative offices on Beaver Brook Road.
