Aaron, your numbers are completely off base in this article. Per the budget you have posted, the municipal budget is $21,582,470 and the school budget is $38,580,470 for a total Town budget of $60,402,620.

Thank you, Tami. The original post had the wrong figures for the education budget. It has been corrected.
