Virtual public hearing in Danbury tonight on proposed budget

The Danbury Public School District has sent out a letter to the community calling attention to the differences in the budget the Board of Ed requested, and the one currently under consideration.  District officials want the City to increase funding because an additional 750 students are expected over the next five years.  There's a virtual public hearing on the $267 million budget tonight at 7pm.  The Board of Ed is calling for another $4 million dllars.  According to Mayor Joe Cavo's budget proposal, $137 million in city funding is boosted by little more than $5 million in federal grants and $3.5 million surplus from the prior year bringing the total to $146 million.  The current year's city contribution was about $135 million for the schools. Residents may weigh in via email comments@danbury-ct.gov with their full name, address, and comment. The subject matter should be included in the subject line of the email.
