There will be an Annual Town Meeting on the budget on Monday, April 3 at 7:00 PM at Bethel High School.
If you are new to Bethel, the purpose of the Town Meeting is for registered voters to vote on moving the Town and School budget to the full electorate in the form of a budget referendum (election). The Board of Education budget moving forward is a 3.9% increase over last year. We have updated our District Financial Dashboard to reflect the new changes. We were able to recommend reductions to the Board of Education budget to the Board of Finance due to the fact that we went out to bid on our health insurance. The reductions will not affect any current programs or services to our students. Babysitting will be provided at the Town Meeting (for children that are toilet trained).
