Some big money decisions in Bethel today and tomorrow.  The budget referendum is today, with residents deciding on a $29.8 million municipal budget and $45.1 million for the schools. It's a 2.8 percent spending increase, bumping up the mill rate by .48 percent. The $2.3 million capital budget includes funding for a turf field, funding for a street sweeper, HVAC equipment for the high school and a fire engine. 


Polls close at 8pm.


There is a meeting tomorrow night in Bethel about police station construction being $889,000 over budget. Plans call for the firing range to be left incomplete and new furniture purchases halted if more money isn't allocated. 


The meeting tomorrow is at 7pm.
