BRANDON — Residents will vote Tuesday on the town’s spending budget for the third time this year. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Neshobe School gym.
The proposed budget up for consideration is $2,385,642 which is an increase of $138,592, or 6.17 percent, over this year’s budget.
An original budget of $2,480,080, approved at Town Meeting Day by eight votes, was later overturned after a successful petition put the budget back on the ballot a month later. It sought to increase municipal spending by more than 10 percent.MORE IN This Just InThe nephew of the mayor of Rutland City has pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute heroin. Full Story
