Welcome to budget season. The Board of Education’s adoption of a trimmed version of Superintendent Dr. David Title’s 2013-2014 budget was just the beginning.
Tonight, First Selectman Michael Tetreau will unveil his proposed Fiscal Year 2014 operating budget for the town before a joint meeting of the Board of Finance and Board of Selectmen.
This meeting -- 7 p.m. at the Board of Education Conference Room (501 Kings Highway East, second floor) will kick off the marathon of upcoming budget sessions and, in early May, the final RTM vote.
Patch is here to try to make the next few months a little easier on you. You can refer to our “ Budget 2013 Topics Page,” where you'll find -- all in one place -- any and all articles, announcements, meetings, and events as they’re published on Fairfield Patch.
