BRANDON — The majority of Brandon voters voted “no” again on Tuesday, defeating the proposed municipal budget for the third time this year despite an impassioned plea from the selectboard chair. The tally was 376-671.

Three articles establishing $60,000 in three separate funds for specific purposes were also defeated.

On Wednesday morning, the board held an emergency meeting warned 24 hours before to figure out next steps, which will include cutting services and personnel as the end of the fiscal year looms on June 30.
