The Annual Town Meeting will be held in Ridgefield on Saturday. Residents will be able to view the meeting via livestream on the town website. Ridgefield residents are being asked to consider the $38.2 million municipal budget and the $102.26 million school budget for the coming fiscal year.
Debt service totals $9.78 million. Town road and infrastructure improvements total little more than a million dollars.
Other questions on the ballot will be $900,000 for Scott's Ridge and Tiger Hollow turf field replacements, $524,000 for police body and dash cameras and police/fire architectural building plans, and $1.35 million for school projects. That work includes LED lighting upgrades, network infrastructure upgrades, East Ridge Middle School auditorium improvements and a generator for that building. There's also proposed bonding for a Mac Truck, sidewalk improvements, construction of the Norwalk River Valley Trail, some of which will be reimbursed by grant money.
The annual town meeting on Saturday will be held outdoors at the Venus Complex on Governor Street under a tent. No pre-registration is required.
If approved, these items will be sent to a referendum vote on May 11th 6am to 8pm at Yanity Gym.
