Brookfield municipal and school officials are working on a budget.  First Selectman Steve Dunn says his goal is to hold departments to an increase of no more than 2-percent.  The Brookfield Board of Education is seeking a 3.9 percent hike.  The $44.4 million spending plan was reduced from the Superintendent's original proposal by eliminating a consultant to study school start times and using money from this year's budget for a mobile world language lab at Whisconier Middle School.  Most of the increase is for contractual salary and benefit obligations.  The district is also looking to add four new teachers.  A tri-board meeting of Selectmen, Finance and Education is planned for February 5th.
