New Milford officials will have to go back to the drawing board on the budget. the municipal plan was approved by fewer than 100 votes, but the school budget was rejected by about 200 ballots. There was light turn out and some people questioned whether there should be another referendum because of the storm. There was about 18-percent turn out yesterday. The next step in the budget process is to go back to the New Milford Town Council for their recommendations and then to the public for another vote.
