The new proposed municipal budget in Bethel for the coming fiscal year is $26.9 million.  Residents will be back at the polls on Thursday June 12th.  The Board of Finance has proposed cutting about $230,000 from the budget that failed by 7 votes last month. 


The cuts are proposed across the board--some from the Bethel Police and Fire Departments, the library, the highway department and elsewhere. 


The education budget will stand, as approved at $42 million and will not be voted on again.  There's also just over $2 million in capital expenses that were approved.
