There's a public hearing in New Milford tonight about a budget proposal for the coming fiscal year. Taxes would increase 1.87-percent under the plan, which includes about $39 million for the town and $63 million for the schools. Overall spending is up about 2.7 percent. Most of the school spending increase is for contractual obligations and health insurance hikes. A controversial part of the proposal is a 30-percent cut to nonprofits. The plan also includes $1.2 million in revenue from sales of town-owned properties, which have not yet been sold. The public hearing at New Milford High School is at 7pm.
