BRANDON — On Town Meeting Day Brandon voters will consider a municipal budget that features a modest overall spending increase, but voter approval would mean a lower tax rate.

Voting on town and school budgets and officers will take place Tuesday at the town hall, downstairs, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
