New Fairfield Finance Board advances budget proposal

The New Fairfield Board of Finance has signed off on a no-increase budget for the towns and schools.  But town officials caution that pending cuts in state aide could add 4-percent to tax bills.  The proposed school budget was reduced by $1.5 million.  The Newstimes reports that 6 new employees will not be hired by the Board of Education and two restoration projects will be put on hold.  Those two changes account for $670,000 of the needed reductions.  The municipal budget is pegged at $10.91 million.
