A $165.4 million education budget proposed for 2016-17, with a 2. 6 percent increase, was unveiled Tuesday by Superintendent of Schools David Title.
Title detailed his $165,393,561 spending package — $4,177,921 more than this year’s budget of $160.8 million — to the Board of Education and about 75 members of the public. The proposed budget, which the panel expects to vote on later this month, then faces review by other town boards before final action by the Representative Town Meeting in the spring. The new budget will take effect July 1.
