Update, Monday 5:45 a.m.
All questions passed voters' approval last night, according to the original story below.
"People were pleased with the job the town did putting the budget together," said First Selectman Rudy Marconi.
"Even the close questions passed overwhelmingly," Marconi added.
He cited the lowering of taxes, the minimum expenses and conservative increases as reasons the budget was less contentious than usual, leading to a low turnout of just over 12 percent.
Only 2,018 voters came to the polls.
The following is each question and the number of votes:
Question Yes No 1: $45,384,931 town operating 1642 365 2: $81,269,473 school operating
1531 484 3: $235,000 police dispatch 1508 490 4: $1,760,000 roads 1632 372 5: $630,000 building repairs/equipment 1515 475 6: $905,000 sidewalk/paving/traffic lights 1560 432 7: $750,000 school capital 1557 447
Marking the end of an uncontentious budget season, Ridgefielders overwhelmingly voted to approve both the and operating budgets, as well as all capital items.
But was a different story -- 12.3 percent of registered voters came to the polls Tuesday, as opposed to the almost 30 percent that showed up last year.
With all questions approved, taxes will decrease by 1.15 percent in 2012-13.
Check back tomorrow morning for an update with unofficial results and a reaction from First Selectman Rudy Marconi.
