Budgeteers chop Tiverton school request
Vote for "compromise" budget
TIVERTON — After an acrimonious meeting in Tiverton Town Hall last Thursday, the eleven-member town budget committee, on which the TivertonTaxpayers Association (TTA) holds a 6-5 majority, voted what it was calling a "compromise budget" of $31,442,700 to educate the town's children in the coming fiscal year.
Compromise or not, that sum is "$505,020 less than our request. We are in serious trouble," said Tiverton School Superintendent, Dr. Peter Sanchioni last Friday.
