The Newtown Legislative Council has approved a budget to send to a referendum later this month. Newtown residents will vote on the proposed $114 million plan the same day as the Presidential Primary, April 26th. The budget represents a 1.62 percent spending increase.
The municipal budget is about $40.5 million, a more than $400,000 reduction from what was proposed by the Board of Selectmen. The education budget is proposed at $73.6 million, $100,000 less than presented by the schools.
Absentee ballots are available at the Town Clerk's Office.
