Danbury Mayor critical of state deficits

A status quo spending package for the coming fiscal year is being considered by the Danbury City Council.  The $244 million general fund spending plan includes a slight tax increase.  Mayor Mark Boughton says the state is going to make municipalities think differently about how to deliver services.


He notes that the General Assembly is not putting in any incentives for municipal government to combine departments in the form of grants, but rather saying that municipalities could lose current state funding if they don't streamline services.


As the state grapples with massive deficits over the next 24 months, Boughton says the effects will bleed down into cities and towns.
