Weston budget public hearing is tonight

moneyA public hearing to discuss the town and school budgets is being held by the Weston Board of Finance, tonight, Wednesday, April 3, at 8 p.m., at the Weston Middle School cafeteria.

On the table are initial budget requests: Town operating budget $11,690,441 (a 3.32% increase over the current year), $46.29-million school budget (a 1.55% increase), and a combined $1,128,728 town and school capital budget (a 30.2% decrease).

The school board, however, is expected to change its request. The board met last week, on Thursday, March 28, and discussed making even more reductions. As a result, the school board is expected to ask the finance board for an even lower school budget: $45,765,418 — $528,250 less than originally requested, and $178,226 more than the current budget. The new request is a 0.39% increase from the current budget.
