Woodbridge Mill Rate Amongst the Highest

Woodbridge Mill Rate Amongst the Highest

It’s that time of year when municipalities prepare and vote on their budgets, then set new mill rates. Knowing the current mill rate for Woodbridge is 37.66 I was curious how it compared to others. I checked the CT.gov website for current mill rates published by the Office of Policy and Management and I was shocked! Little old bedroom-town Woodbridge has one of the HIGHEST mill rates in CT.

There are only 17 municipalities whose mill rates are higher outright: Bridgeport, E. Hartford, Hamden, Hartford, Manchester, Naugatuck, New Britain, New Haven, New London, Norwalk, Norwich, Stamford, Torrington, Waterbury, W. Hartford, West Haven, and Wethersfield.

Certain districts only in the following towns are also higher: Bloomfield, Enfield, Meriden, Middletown, Simsbury, and Windham.

What does this say about Woodbridge’s spending? How did this happen? I guess we residents have been sleeping. I hope we wake up before the new rate is set.
