NORTH BRANFORD — The Town Council approved a proposed 2008-09 budget Tuesday night that would increase overall funding by 5.5 percent over this year.
The town is planning to hold an advisory referendum on the $44 million budget, but the referendum is not binding on the council.
The budget includes $28.4 million for education and $11.8 million for town government operations. Interim Town Manager Michael Paulhus originally put forward a $44.9 million budget, but the Town Council whittled it down to the current $44 million proposal.
