A public hearing on the proposed $101.8 million Operating Budget is scheduled for tonight, April 2, at 7:30 in Cheshire Town Hall. This is an opportunity for residents to spoke about any aspect of the budget. Members of the public can voice concerns, or share support, for any or all of the proposed budget.
For the last few weeks members of the Town Council have discussed every nook and cranny of Town Manager Michael Milone’s 2013/2014 Operating Budget proposal.
The budget includes $64.5 million in Education funding, which is an increase of $2 million from the current year. The General Government side of the budget is proposed to increase by $1.3 million, or 4.92 percent, for a total of nearly $28 million.
Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting, as it is the only public hearing scheduled for the Operating Budget. The Town Council plans to meet later this week to discuss various cuts to the plan, before meeting again on April 9 to adopt the budget.
A full story on the public hearing will be found in the April 4 edition of The Cheshire Herald.
