All of Rutland city’s municipal and school budgets passed as did all the articles.

A $7.4 million bond for sewage improvements was approved 1910-548 and a $3 million bond for road improvements was approved 1848-614.

The $21.4 million municipal budget passed 1575-1061 on Tuesday and the $54.4 million school budget passed 1438-1061.
