To the Editors:
At last week’s Board of Finance (BoF) meeting the 2017 budget realities for Wilton were discussed in detail. I commend the BoF for their realistic, fact-based approach to the situation we are now in due to many of the fiscally irresponsible decisions that were made in the past. They found it hard to understand why, with school enrollments in significant decline, school budgets continue to increase. The school budgets now account for over 70% of the town’s budget, not even counting the costs incurred for the bonding of Miller-Driscoll (MD).
