    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.
