TRUMBULL, Conn. – Trumbull First Selectman Tim Herbst's proposed 2016-17 budget was approved with an increase of over $230,000 by the town's Finance Board on Monday night, according to the Connecticut Post.
The increase pushes the proposed budget to just under $175 million, the Post said.
While the education budget stayed at Herbst's proposed $108.7 million, the police budget was cut by just over $161,000, eliminating two vacant positions and adding a third school resource officer, reported the Connecticut Post.
The proposal will now go to the Town Council for final approval, the Post noted.
