The state budget includes a net increase in funding for Bethel’s education system. There's more than $89,000 additional funding for Bethel’s schools and a $126,000 expenditure increase for Bethel’s Teacher Retirement Fund, an expense that was previously stated to be absorbed by the town. 

Representative Raghib Allie-Brennan says the budget also includes a $33,000 line item for the Bethel Youth Booster Club, an organization created to support after school programs for Bethel youth. 

First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says it's essential to find ways to minimize the impact of increased property taxes on local homeowners, and this budget helps achieve that goal.
