    BENNINGTON — The Bennington School District budget was defeated again Tuesday by a vote of 524-473.

    The budget of $12,940,745 had been cut by more than $575,000 from the budget which was defeated in March.

    That budget, $13,518,802, lost by a vote of 1,095-915.

    In March, George Sleeman, vice-chairman of the Bennington School Board, said he thought the budget may have been defeated because it was an increase of about 19 percent from the previous year's budget of $11,360,113.

    Sleeman said Tuesday that the latest budget, which was an increase of about 14 percent from the budget passed in 2012, might have still been too high.

    “What we'll have to do is we'll have to call an immediate meeting of the (school board.) We'll try and meet, hopefully this week or the first of next week, and we'll review it and come up with a decision as to what we're going to do,” he said.
