Bethel annual town meeting vets budget proposals

The annual town meeting in Bethel about the budget was held last night.  Residents were told about the proposals for the coming fiscal year's tax and spending plan.  First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says there's $2.43 million in proposed capital expenses, including $1.5 million for road construction.

 

The capital items also include $96,000 for the Parks and Recreation Department for a tractor, a replacement truck and the Meckauer Park garage.  $650,000 for a new firetruck and $50,000 for a study of the Municipal Center gym are some of the other items.

 

The proposed education budget is $42.1 million.  The $27.2 million municipal budget includes $3.84 million in debt service and the school's 540-thousand dollar building maintenance account. 

 

A referendum vote will be held later this month.
