A town meeting will be held in Redding next Thursday to set the date of the budget referendum. The Board of Selectmen has decided to send the budget to a machine vote referendum, so the town meeting will only be to set the date.
There have been public hearings already about the proposed budget, which represents a 1.3 percent increase in spending.
The town budget meeting will be held on Thursday in the afternoon at town hall. Officials are recommending the referendum be held May 7th.
