STRATFORD, Conn. – Schools would benefit if a $216 million spending plan proposed by Stratford Mayor John Harkins goes through, according to a report on ctpost.com.
Harkins’ 2016-17 budget, which now goes to the Town Council for approval, calls for a 7.4 percent increase in spending for schools and would increase taxes to 38.84 mills, about 1.86 mills more than residents are paying now, ctpost.com reported.
About $107 million of the total budget would go toward education spending, ctpost.com reported. Municipal spending would stay about the same, ctpost.com said.
The Town Council is expected to vote on the budget in May.
