    BENNINGTON — In a vote of 524-473 Bennington defeated a school budget of $12,940,745 Tuesday night.

    In March, voters defeated a budget of $13,518,802 by a vote of 1,095-915. That budget was an increase of 19 percent over the budget of $11,360,113 which was approved in 2012.

    The budget put before voters today was an increase of almost 14 percent, or $1,580,632, more than last year’s budget.

    The School Board, with the help of financial staff from the Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union, were able to cut more than $575,000 from the budget proposed in March.

    The only school budget that failed to pass in Bennington County in March was the Bennington School District budget.
