During a special meeting on Friday, the Redding Board of Education decided to ask the Board of Finance to change it's proposed budget. The Finance Board wanted the schools to find another $300,000 to cut from a budget that already was going to cost less than the current year.
The Board of Education says that violates the state's Education Cost Sharing minimum budget requirement.
The group met in executive session and also then decided to ask the Town Clerk and the Boards of Finance and Selectmen to put an advisory question on the ballot if the Finance board doesn't change their mind on the proposal. The question would ask no voters if they cast their ballot that way because the budget was too high or to low.
