New Milford school board to adopt budget

January 31, 2019

NEW MILFORD — The school board is expected to adopt a budget at tonight’s meeting for the upcoming school year.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at Sarah Noble Intermediate School.

Interim Superintendent Stephen Tracy proposed a $65 million budget last week for the 2019-2020 school year, which translates to a 3.26 percent increase from this year’s budget.

The $2 million increase is largely due to personnel costs, transportation and capital items, as well as around $184,000 less in state revenue and removing pay to play, which generates $110,000.

Thursday’s meeting is the fourth and final budget workshop since last Tuesday’s initial presentation.
