Burlington School budget one step closer to revote

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. - A new Burlington school budget is one step closer to a revote in the community.

The Burlington School Board voted in favor of a $67.4 million budget. Dozens of parents and voters turned out Thursday night for public testimony on their thoughts and concerns on the new more expensive budget.

A recent audit uncovered a $2.5 million deficit forcing the board to slash about $2.5 million in programming and staff. This new budget is $600,000 more than what was voted down on Town Meeting Day.

The budget will now be presented to the City Council next week.
