Monroe First Selectman presents budget to town officials

Monroe First Selectman Ken Kellogg has presented his proposed budget to Town Council.  The plan includes a municipal spending increase of 2.16 percent, which he says maintains services, meets contractual obligations and the ongoing increases in the costs of medical insurance, as well as the state police pension plan.  The Board of Education appropriation makes up over two thirds of the entire Town budget and their request is a 5.85 percent increase over the current fiscal year. Kellogg's proposal reduced that request by $132,000.  The budget projects a tax rate increase of 3.31%, which would result in a 4-year average of less than 1% per year.  His proposal includes the use of some fund balance to reduce the strain on taxpayers.
