SHELTON — Although there will be no public hearing on the 2020-21 fiscal year budget, residents can still make their opinions heard.
Mayor Mark Lauretti presented his budget on April 21. The plan is now with the Board of Apportionment and Taxation before the Board of Aldermen gives final adoption. To mitigate spread of the pandemic, Gov. Ned Lamont established social distancing rules that prevent gatherings such as budget public hearings. Deliberations are being done via teleconferencing.
