The Newtown Legislative Council has restored money to the proposed budget for the coming fiscal year for two armed school security officers. The recommendation would have reduced the number of SSOs at the high school and the new Sandy Hook School, but it was decided that each school would continue to have two SSOs each.
The Legislative Council held a budget session last night about recommendations for next fiscal year.
The Newtown Board of Finance has proposed a $73.86 million education budget, a little more than 3-percent increase. The municipal budget is proposed at $41 million, a 2.23 percent increase.
