    The Rutland Town School Board wasted no time trimming its budget by $128,000 for a revote March 26.

    During a meeting Wednesday night, one day after town meeting, the board adopted a proposed budget of $7,999,000, an increase of $326,085, or 4.2 percent, more than the current budget of $7,672,915.

    Tuesday, by a 22-vote margin, residents rejected a proposed budget of $8,127,036, which represented an increase of 5.9 percent, or $454,120.

    There will be an informational meeting at 7 p.m., March 25, at Rutland Town School. Voters will cast their votes the following day, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the town hall and the school.
