Sudbury Town Meeting approves $75 million budget

Posted by Ralph Ranalli April 7, 2008 09:10 PM

In the wake of two override proposals failing at last week's town elections, the Sudbury Town Meeting tonight approved a budget of $75,552,508.

Even though the two override proposals (one for $1.8 million and one for $2.8 million) failed, the budget approved was still $400,000 more than town officials had previously announced. Officials said that the town received additional ambulance revenues and increased state aid.

Officials said that $225,000 of the additional funds will be earmarked for the Sudbury Public Schools, which would have received $1 million from the overrides if they had passed.
