The Annual Town Meeting in New Fairfield was held Wednesday night. Residents set a budget referendum date of May 13th. The municipal budget proposal is $10.9 million with the Board of Ed asking that voters approve a $40.9 million spending plan.
There are no big projects being funded by the proposed plan. The town will be doing some road repair work. The Board of Ed is moving forward with some initiatives as well. But First Selectman Susan Chapman says it's not the budget they would like to put forward.
The spending plans were cut in order to work with anticipated reductions in state aide for the municipality and the school.
