DANBURY, Conn. — In a vote of 15 to 6 on Tuesday night, the Danbury City Council approved a $244 million budget for the next fiscal year, according to WLAD.com.

Although the city has deferred filling 45 job positions to save $500,000, it has also increased its contribution to the school budget, WLAD.com said.

Mayor Mark Boughton said the average homeowner would see an increase in property taxes of less than $100 per year under the approved budget, WLAD.com said.

The City Council also unanimously approved $3 million in capital projects, including a school roof replacement program and cleanup of the Still River, WLAD.com said.
