REGIONALIZATION PUBLIC HEARING
First Selectwoman Derrylyn Gorski attended the Public Hearing in Hartford last week regarding School Regionalization, as being recommended by the new session of the State of Connecticut Legislature. First Selectwoman Gorski talked to George Logan our State Senator and House Representative Lezlye Zupkus regarding this proposed change. Since the teacher salaries are not the same in each Town because of Union Contracts this could cause an increase in the education budgets of some towns. The benefit of regionalization could be sharing of special education resources which could be a savings to school budgets.
GENERAL GOVERNMENT BUDGET
First Selectwoman Gorski reports that the General Government portion of the budget is relatively flat other than what is budgeted for roads. The Board of Finance will meet tomorrow night to discuss whether to bond for extensive road repairs in fiscal year 2019-20.
