Danbury Board of Ed proposes nearly 10-percent increase in budget for coming year

The Danbury Board of Education is proposing a 9.82 percent increase in the school budget for the coming year.  With one abstention, the Board voted to send Mayor Joe Cavo a $149-million proposal.  Cavo plans to meet with the Superintendent and others to see  how federal and state grants fit into the plan.  Governor Lamont proposed keeping a state grant to Danbury flat at $37.7 million, with the Alliance grant from the state also remaining the same.  Danbury could get an additional $10 million from the federal government over two years for the schools.  The Mayor is currently drafting a budget to present to the City Council in April.  Members will then vet the plan and vote on a proposal for the City and schools at their May meeting.
