Town Budgets, Regional # 7 Budgets Pass – UNOFFICIAL Results

Today, Tuesday, May 6 both Barkhamsted and New Hartford voters voted on their town’s proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2014-2015, as well as on the Regional # 7 budget.

The New Hartford and the Barkhamsted budgets passed and the Regional # 7 budget garnered enough votes overall to pass.  Here is the UNOFFICIAL breakdown of the votes:

Barkhamsted:

At the Annual Budget Meeting voters voted unanimously to approve the Town Government budget which includes both the General Government and the local education budget.

At the Regional #7 referendum, Barkhamsted voters cast 86 “Yes” votes, 30 “No” votes.*

New Hartford:

At the referendum, New Hartford voters voted on Question 1:  The Town Government budget which includes both the General Government and the local education budget; and Question 2: The Regional #7 budget.

On the Town Government Budget, New Hartford voters cast 205 “Yes” votes, 149 “No” votes. The Town Government budget was approved.

On the Regional # 7 budget, New Hartford residents cast 142 “Yes” votes, 210 “No” votes. In New Hartford the Regional #7 budget was not approved.*

* The Regional #7 budget is voted on by all four member towns – New Hartford, Barkhamsted, Colebrook and Norfolk.  The total votes cast in the four towns on the Regional #7 budget were 375 “Yes” votes, 293 “No” votes, therefore the Regional #7 budget was approved.

Disclaimer:  Please keep in mind that these are the unofficial results.  Official results should be available on Wednesday from the New Hartford and the Barkhamsted Town Clerks.

With just a few minutes before the end of voting on the Regional #7 budget, a poll worker scans the parking lot of the Town Garage for last-minute voters.
