The next stop for the Litchfield Board of Selectmen’s proposed budget of $8,297,284 for 2019-20 is the Board of Finance.
First Selectman Leo Paul Jr. will present the spending plan to the finance board on Monday.
During their meeting Tuesday, selectmen adopted the proposed budget, which seeks and increase in spending of $140,026, or 1.78 percent, over the current budget of $8,157,258.
Adoption of the spending plan was quick and unanimous.
“It looks like a good budget, and I’m fine with it,” said Selectman Jeffrey Zullo, who has traditionally been opposed to initial selectmen budget proposals.
Paul credited town department heads, public works Director Raz Alexe and finance director Amaechi Obi for the work they did in helping to fashion a budget plan Paul called reasonable and responsible.
