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.
