Burlington parents, teachers urge for revote of school budget

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

It was a packed house at the Burlington School Board meeting Tuesday as the community weighed in on the budget.

Voters in the Queen City rejected a proposed budget on Town Meeting Day. So Tuesday the board held a special meeting and hundreds crammed into the high school cafeteria. Earlier this month the budget was shot down by nearly 700 votes, but during Tuesday's meeting many said they want a revote.

Parents, teachers, and students addressed the board urging them not to make cuts to the budget and instead bring the budget back to voters one more time.
