Woodstock-Area School Budget Headed to Passage

Tuesday, March 06, 2018

Woodstock — Unofficial results indicate voters in the new, multi-town Windsor Central Modified Unified Union School District appear to have passed the school budget.

The $17.96 million budget covers students in Bridgewater, Killington, Plymouth, Pomfret, Reading and Woodstock, as well as seventh-12th grade students of Barnard.

Barnard was the only town whose results weren’t yet tallied, District Clerk Tim Bishop said late Tuesday night. Voters in the other six towns passed the budget on a vote of 792-475.

Pomfret residents passed their budget, 72-30; Bridgewater, 48-34; Killington, 224-130; Plymouth 52-20; Woodstock, 316-212; and Reading 80-49. Most towns had some blank or spoiled ballots.

“We have not called it,” Bishop said. “It takes all votes, but it looks like it is probably going to pass.”

The district will hold a floor meeting to discuss business that wasn’t on the ballot at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 12 at the Woodstock High School/Middle School library.
