Sherman residents approve budget, septic ordinance

Sherman residents have approved a budget.  The town budget was approved 416 to 96. 


The school portion is flat, while municipal spending is up.  That's to anticipate costs from having to pay 100-percent of the Resident State Trooper program. 


First Selectman Clay Cope says that cost-shift alone added $45,140 or an increase of 25.6% to that line in the budget.


First Selectman Clay Cope says even though there is a spending increase, property taxes won't go up because of grand list growth and renegotiated bonds resulting in a debt-costs savings. 


The Board of Education budget was approved on a vote of 389 to 123.  Voters also narrowly approved the Septic Ordinance, 298 to 208.
