Redding officials start to work on budget for coming fiscal year

The Redding Board of Selectmen is digging into the budget proposal for the coming fiscal year.  First Selectman Julia Pemberton noted that they have control over about 30-percent of the annual budget, which this year is $14.75 million.  That figure includes $1.75 million in debt service for all Town capital projects include those at Redding Elementary and John Read Middle School. The remaining 70-percent of the budget is spent on education in the Redding schools and on the  town's share for Joel Barlow High School.  Over the last few years, Pemberton says they have consolidated departments, improved services, improved communication, made government more transparent, but they are sharpening their pencils once again.
