The Board of Finance unanimously approved a 3.25 percent mill-rate increase during its regular meeting Monday night. The town's mill rate will jump from 11.37 to 11.74 mills, increasing the average Darien resident's tax bill by $310.80.

The new budget stands at $109,691,800, and includes a $71,512,041 Board of Education budget as well as a $38,179,759 Board of Selectmen budget.

The budget is still subject to approval by the RTM, which is scheduled to vote at its May 10 meeting.

The Darien News will have more details in Thursday's print edition.
