SEYMOUR >> It hasn’t happened in quite some time, but voters on Thursday approved the town budget for fiscal year 2015-16 on the very first try — but not surprisingly, shot down the Board of Education budget by only 100 votes.
In a daylong referendum held at the Seymour Community Center, voters approved the $23.2 million town side of the budget by a vote of 621-563, but rejected the $32.7 million school budget by a vote of 642-542.
Historically in Seymour, voters usually approve the town side of the budget on the second go-around. It often takes three or four referendums before voters approve a school budget.
The Board of Finance will next meet at 7 p.m. May 5 at Town Hall to discuss what needs to be done to the school budget’s bottom line in order to get voters to approve it.
