Wow. A municipality lowers its budget

  Joe Wojtas  reports here that Stonington Borough cut a sizable chunk of spending from its budget.

 

The proposed $982,582 borough budget is a $46,365 decrease when compared to the current budget. ...

Warden Paul Burgess said Thursday that the board went through the budget line by line and made cuts based on the tracking of expenditures. Few accounts showed any increases.

The budget also calls for spending $150,000 on road repairs. The work would be done on Grand Street between Main and Northwest streets, Church Street between Main and Gold streets, and on Temple Street.

 

Maybe the budget cutting will spread. But I doubt it. I know of one big city around here where you aren't likely to see big spending cuts proposed, as budget season opens.
