TRUMBULL, CONN. -- A majority of the Trumbull Board of Education members voted to whittle down the proposed 2016-17 budget to keep the increase in spending from the prior year at 2.79 percent, according to the Trumbull Times.

Cuts made Tuesday night bring the proposed budget increase down from 3.18 percent, the Times said. Republican majority members voted to cut two of three proposed elementary-level technology specialists at a savings of $150,000, and agreed to further put off the elimination of pay-to-participate fees, the Trumbull Times said.

The new proposed $99,933,178 spending plan now goes before the board's Finance Committee for further review, the Trumbull Times reported.
