Brookfield residents turned out to the polls on Tuesday to vote on a budget, despite the severe weather, and overwhelmingly rejected the proposal. The $43 million school budget and the $24.4 million municipal plan failed by about 500 votes each. The capital budget was rejected by about 300 votes. It would have been a 4.1-percent spending increase. There were just a handful of voters who cast ballots after 5pm when the storm roared through.
