Chairman Brunwin called the special meeting of the Board of Finance to order at 7:07 p.m. The meeting was held in the Conference Room of the Bethany Town Hall.

BUDGET 2009-10
Discussion was opened by Chairman Brunwin regarding the Board of Finance Public Hearing held the previous night. Do we want to change anything? Considering all comments made at the Public Hearing it was the consensus of the Board that no changes were necessary at this time. Squinto then moved a motion to approve the budget as presented last night at the Public Hearing. Van Horn seconded the motion. The vote was called. There were five (5) yes votes to approve as presented and one (1) no vote that of Brinton Jr.

No mill rate was set at this time. There is a possibility that modifications could still be made within the State of Connecticut grants to municipalities. The mill rate will be set at a special meeting on May 19, 2009 if the budget passes at the Annual Town Meeting on May 18, 2009.

Adjournment was called at 7:15 p.m. after a motion was moved by Squinto and seconded by Gallant. The vote taken was unanimous.

Respectfully submitted,

June G. Riley
Clerk, Board of Finance
