Bethel Board of Finance will continue budget discussions

The Bethel Board of Finance will continue budget discussion this evening through a virtual meeting via the Zoom platform.  During an earlier public hearing on the proposed $80.7 million proposal, there was mixed response.  Some residents say the spending increase is needed because of increased school enrollment and more people relying on town services during this public health crisis.  Others oppose the idea of not being able to vote on a tax increase, and say more residents are unemployed and can't afford a tax hike.  During the earlier public hearing, the Board of Finance discussed the possibility of cutting the recommended budget by at least $1 million to keep te tax increase under 1-percent, or $1.6 million for a flat budget.
