Stonington voters to decide Tuesday on $58.5 million budget

Published May 05. 2014 4:00AM

Stonington - Three weeks after more than 500 people packed a public hearing and unsuccessfully called upon the Board of Finance to restore all the $525,000 cut from the school budget, voters will head to the polls Tuesday to vote on the proposed $58.5 million town and school budget for 2014-15 and its .55-mill tax rate increase.

The finance board restored $270,000 and combined with the transfer of other funds, the cut to the original $1 million proposed increase now stands at $190,000. The overall town, school and capital improvement budget now calls for a 1 percent increase.

Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. at following location: Districts 1 and 3: Stonington Borough Firehouse; District 2, Pawcatuck Firehouse; Districts 4 and 5, B. F. Hoxie Engine Company firehouse. The results will be announced at 8:30 p.m. in Town Hall. Absentee ballots are available in the Town Clerk's office.
