Polls open today in Rutland Town school budget re-vote

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. tonight for residents to vote for a third time on a proposed budget for the Rutland Town School District.
The School Board has proposed a budget of $7,974,000 for fiscal year 2013-14. This proposal is an increase of $211,085, or 2.7 percent, compared to the current budget of $7,762,915.
On Town Meeting Day, voters defeated a proposed budget of $8,127,036 by a 22-vote margin. That margin was even wider March 26, when voters defeated a second proposed budget of $7,999,000 by a vote of 255 to 229.
Residents who live east of Route 7 can vote at the school. Residents living west of Route 7 can vote at the Town Hall.
