BURLINGTON, Vermont: With a vote of 11-2, the Burlington city budget was approved on June 23,2009 for the fiscal year 2010. The budget was approved with the council's two Republicans, Paul Decelles and Vince Dober, voting no.[1]

The overall municipal budget for the coming year, including the school budget, is about $272.7 million. The approval from the city council means the budget will impose a tax increase of 6.3 percent, from 67 cents per $100 of assessed value to 71.2 cents. The council also approved increases in the rates for water and wastewater treatment. A three-year plan to increase rates by 10 percent a year began with the current budget and will continue through fiscal year 2010 and 2011.
