Bethel Board of Finance to discuss proposed budget tonight

The Bethel Board of Finance will discuss the budget tonight at their regularly scheduled meeting, which will be held virtually.  The proposed budget was $80.7 million.  It was was slated to go to a public hearing, town meeting and then referendum before the pandemic hit and gatherings of less than 5 were recommended.  The Governor has mandated finance boards approve budgets directly.  The Bethel Board of Finance will take another look at the recommended budget and hold a public hearing at a future date.  The $80 million is a 3.49 percent spending hike and breaks down to $32.5 million on the municipal side and $48.2 million for the schools. If nothing is changed, the tax rate would increase by 2.39 percent.  Tonight's Bethel Board of Finance meeting will be held on the Zoom video conferencing platform at 7pm.
