DARIEN, Conn. -- The $45 million town operating budget presented this week represents a 3.2 percent decrease in spending in Darien over last year, according to the Darien Times.
Town Administrator Kate Buch said Darien's mill rate would go up to 15.70, an increase of just 0.35, the Times said.
Buch attributed the savings to changes in the town’s pension and health care offerings as well as low energy costs, the Darien Times said.
First Selectman Jayme Stevenson credited the sound budget to "good management," the Times said.
The Board of Selectmen will review the budget during special meetings that continue on Feb 1 and is expected to vote on Feb. 10, the Times said. Check the meeting schedule online here .
