MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury selectboard members OK’d a town spending plan and town meeting warning at their Tuesday meeting.

The amount to be raised by taxes would result in a 0.42-cent decrease in the current municipal rate, which would drop to 95.22 cents per $100 in property value. The selectboard achieved this, in part, by applying a larger than anticipated surplus from the fiscal year 2016 budget year.
