VoteBudget Vote on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 - Please Vote Yes!

There will be a vote on the proposed Town of Coventry budget on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 at the two firehouses. More on voting can be found at the Town website. More info on the budget may be found here.

 The proposed budget was unanimously approved a bi-partisan vote by the Town Council on a motion by Councilor Marty Milkovic (D) and seconded by Councilor John French (R). During deliberations, all Councilors worked diligently to make revisions to the Town Manager’s budget that take into account the impacts on taxpayers of inflation, stock market volatility, and energy costs. It is a bare bones budget with a 1.89% increase in the mil rate, meaning that in a time of record inflation Coventry’s tax rate is increasing at a fraction of that pace. The adopted budget includes broad reductions to both Town Government and Board of Education operating costs which will likely result in some reduction of services and programs. The Town Council is committed to continuing to seek grants and other funding to help reduce those impacts.
