Newtown residents have approved several items during a Town Meeting held last night. $1 million in bonding was approved for road improvements and resurfacing projects, beyond what was included in the budget.
$3.6 million was also approved to renovate the Newtown High School auditorium. The project calls for making it handicap accessible, up to code and adding state of the art features. Some of the project would be reimbursed by state funding. It's not slated to begin until early next year.
The road bond passed unanimously by those in attendance at the Town Meeting. There was one vote in opposition to the High School project.
