Ridgefield residents are going to the polls today to vote on a budget for the coming fiscal year. A $38.2 million municipal budget and $102.26 million school budget have been proposed for the coming fiscal year.
Debt service totals $9.78 million. Town road and infrastructure improvements total little more than $1 million.
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.
Polls are open until 8pm at Yanity Gym.
