    PITTSFORD — Minimal discussion preceded the approval of town budgets Monday night in Pittsford.

    By a majority voice vote, residents approved the $1,287,803 town budget, as well as the $1,049,971 highway budget and the $19,000 village budget.

    By ballot Tuesday, residents also approved the school budget of $3,765,871 by a vote of 234-150.

    In the election of town officials, Selectman Allen Hitchcock held off challenger Cathy Rider for a two-year seat by a vote of 239-126. Incumbent Joseph Gagnon was re-elected to a three-year seat, with 323 votes; he was challenged by a write-in campaign by Odell Johnston, who received 39 votes.

    For three library trustee seats, Bob Harnish (66), Shirlee Nickless (44) and Pat Drown (3) were elected in a write-in campaign for all three.

    Sen. Peg Flory, R-Rutland, was selected for a one-year grand juror seat through write-in with 12 votes, beating Peter Cady with 10 write-in votes.
