FALLS VILLAGE — The town meeting to vote on the proposed spending plans of the Board of Selectmen and the Board of Education is Thursday, May 19, 7 p.m. at the Lee H. Kellogg school.Voters should be aware of changes made since the April 25 public hearing. The Board of Finance met May 2 to vote to present the spending plans to the town meeting, and reduced the school board’s bottom line by $24,000.The second question on the agenda, then, is to appropriate up to $3,074,622 for education expenses — $1,361,078 for Region One, and $1,713,584 for Kellogg.The Region One budget passed a referendum vote May 3 (see story, Page A1). The Board of Education’s total proposed spending for Kellogg, as presented at the hearing, was $1,737,584. The $24,000 cut comes from that total, not the Region One budget.The Board of Finance will hold a special meeting Monday, May 23, 6:30 p.m. at Town Hall, to set the mill rate (depending on the outcome of the town meeting).
