STRATFORD, Conn. -- The Stratford Town Council faces town budget adjustments in Monday's meeting since voters did not approve the sale of the waste plant Mayor John Harkins proposed, according to the Connecticut Post.

Under the proposal, the plant would have been sold to the Greater New Haven Water Pollution Control Authority. The town would have used the sale money to cover the "$5.4 million in red ink" but must find it elsewhere, according to the Connecticut Post report.

The meeting's agenda includes two budget referendums, including money transfers dealing with the unapproved WPCA sale and moving money from various departments to add to the council's contingency fund, the Connecticut Post reported.

A third resolution was submitted by two council members but did not get on Monday's agenda, said the Connecticut Post.
