Sadly, many Berlin, Connecticut residents were unaware of the referendum held on April 26, 2011, wherein only 7% of its citizens voted to approve the Town’s budget of $70 million.
518 individuals voted in favor of the budget, with 422 voting against.
The first question is: why did so few of Berlin’s residents turn out to vote on a budget that will raise their property taxes? Don’t the taxpayers care about the amount of property taxes that they will have to pay in July? Certainly they will care when they have to write the check on July 31, 2011.
The second question is: why did 518 individuals vote in favor of the budget? Why didn’t more residents vote it down?
