Newtown officials advance proposed budget

The Newtown Legislative Council has approved the Board of Finance recommendation to present a $111.73 million municipal and education budget to the voters.  The budget referendum will be held on Tuesday April 28th. 

 

Council members Wednesday night praised Newtown officials for finding a million dollars in the budget to move into the road maintenance account rather than increasing the overall bottom line.  The education budget is proposed at $71.58 million while the municipal budget would be approximately $40 million.

 

It's an overall .6 percent increase in spending.  The mill rate would be reduced though because of additional revenue, including on the grand list, and a reduction in debt service costs.
