    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.
