COLCHESTER – Residents Tuesday turned down a city budget of $ 15.8 million and a likely tax hike while narrowly approving a separate spending plan for Colchester public schools.
The referendum failed by 1,022 to 845, according to First Selectwoman Mary Bylone. The education budget was passed by 935 to 932 votes, although she said the margin would trigger an automatic recount.
