Brookfield residents have approved a budget for the coming fiscal year. The $23 million municipal spending plan was approved approximately 1,500 to 800 while the $40.4 million education budget was approved along a similar split.
The budget represents a 2.72 percent tax increase.
Residents also authorized $1.9 million in bond money. It's part of the $3.3 million bond fund discrepancy discovered in December. The money is for capital projects that were supposed to be bonded but apparently never were between 2000 and 2012.
