Ridgefield voters and property owners (with more than $1,000 in assessed value) are called to cast their ballots in the annual budget referendum Tuesday, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Yanity Gym.
The proposed 2014-15 budget includes $33,281,685 in spending for municipal operations (a 2.97 percent increase over 2013-14) and $85,244,727 allocated for education (a 2.86 percent increase over the current year).
The budget also includes $12,990,695 in debt service payments and $1,850,000 for road improvement projects — to be voted on individually Tuesday — for a total of $133,367,107, a 3.89 percent increase in spending.
If approved Tuesday, the proposal would increase the mill rate by 0.63 points (2.49 percent), from 25.38 to 26.01.
Tuesday’s ballot also includes questions on four capital projects and the sale of almost 10 acres of town-owned land on Sunset Lane for $4 million.
