Bristol Council postpones provisional budget vote


The Bristol Town Council postponed taking a vote to adopt a provisional budget Monday, setting a tentative date for that action on Tuesday, April 29.

After a week-long session of budget hearings during which the council discussed each department’s budget request with department heads, the missing piece in the budget analysis is property tax revenue, as the revaluation and appeal process has yet to be completed.

The council plans to go forward with the public hearing on the budget as scheduled for Tuesday, April 21 before meeting to discuss and vote on the provisional budget on April 29.

The final vote to adopt the 2014-2015 budget is scheduled for Monday, May 5.
