Initial engineering and architecture work on improvements to Roger Sherman Baldwin Park can begin, after the Board of Estimate and Taxation voted 9-3 last week to carry forward an allocation of $50,000 from fiscal year ’20 to fiscal year ’21.
The vote was held because the money, which was included in the 2019-2020 budget, wasn’t used. According to the town charter, if an appropriation isn’t committed to, it lapses. However, the BET has the authority to continue it in force for an additional year.
During a special meeting on Tuesday night, the Board of Education (BOE) unanimously voted to approve budget adjustments which brought their new spending total to $163,364,192 for fiscal year 2020-2021. The new budget was agreed to without making cuts to staff or programming. The budget adjustments were needed following the Board of Estimate and Taxation’s response to the coronavirus and the economic fallout.
