Newtown residents approve budget, capital items

With low voter turnout, Newtown residents have approved a budget for the coming fiscal year.  About 9-percent of residents cast ballots yesterday on the combined 123-million dollar budget.  There's a .3 percent decrease in the mill rate.  All three capital projects were also approved.  Those were funding for the Sandy Hook Permanent Memorial, emergency radio system upgrades and gas boiler and LED lighting at Reed Intermediate School.  The municipal budget passed on a vote of 1196 to 521 while the school budget was approved by 1081 votes to 640.  The emergency responder communications and school infrastructure passed by similar margins.  The Sandy Hook Permanent Memorial passed 963 - 748.
