FAIRFIELD — Board of Finance members said Tuesday they’re will to use the bulk of any surplus from the current budget to help make up the $2.3 million gap in the 2017 spending plan due to cuts in state aid.
But recent action by Gov. Dannel Malloy could mean an even bigger hit to the town’s $293.5 million budget. Malloy used his line item veto on the state budget approved by the General Assembly, which has resulted in about another $22 million in state aid cuts. Where those cuts will fall, however, is unknown.
