    DANBY — The third time is the charm as municipal and school budgets were approved on Tuesday following a day of Australian ballot voting.

    Townspeople approved the $1,149,134 municipal spending plan, 183-169. It was up $121,841 over the $1,027,293 soundly defeated by voters in May, 291-174 and it was $74,651 more than the $1,074,483 spending plan narrowly rejected by residents on Town Meeting Day, 192-189.

    Voters also passed the secondary education spending plan of $1,896,834, 191-132. The same amount was narrowly defeated in May, 238-235, and rejected on Town Meeting Day, 202-185.

    The education tax rate is expected to drop 29 cents from $1.40 to $1.11, according to Bennington Rutland Supervisory Union Superintendent Dan French.
